Hi Bull,

Go to folder options and unhide protected o/s files.

Can you find the XP bootfiles anywhere ?

Could you post screen shots of both partitions like this:

BOOTMGR missing!-bootfiles-1-2009-03-23_182600.jpg

and also of Disk Management, like this:

Just look on the partitions - Start orb, Computer, click a partition and in the window that opens, see what's there, and post a screenshot - need to unhide protected o/s files first.

Like this:

LOL - you saw it just as I posted this.

Hi,

How come you divided the HD up like that - unusual.

The 1.46gb partition has to be the active one containing the bootfiles.

You may need to rt click it in Disk Management and give it a drive letter.

Then post a screenshot of it's contents.

I didn't devide it up like that. It was like that from Toshiba. I just created the 30gb partition for Windows 7. (Or maybe someone else devided it like, for this notebook originally came out with Vista.)
So I have to set the 1.46gb partition to active and give it a drive letter? Any available letter?

Just give it a drive letter and post the screenshot, then we will be able to tell if it needs to be the active partition.

Edit: Yes any drive letter

When I right click it under disk manegement I don't get any options to give it a name or anything. There is just one option - description?

Have a look at the 4.79gb one and post a screenshot of that if possible.

What happens if you select description on the little one?

Also, I can't read the characters - do any of the partitions say System , or Active in the Status column?
