Disk 1 Unallocated 465.76 gb logical
Disk 2 NTFS 465.76 Active, Primary
Disk 3
Vista NTFS Active, Primary
New Volume NTFS None, Primary
Win 7 NTFS None, Primary

I have no idea how that second disk got to be Active, It doesnt have an OS on it

I marked the windows 7 partition as active, however it still is not showing the installation, and when it says ''windows found problems with your computer's startup options Do you want to apply repairs and restart your computer?" I click Repair and Restart but there are still ''failed to save startup options''

Is there a generic sata driver I can use to get the installation to show up in system recover options?

Looks like you have delete the first partition with all boot files.

As Startup repair is finding a HD, no need for sata drivers.

File: \Boot\BCD

Vista was installed first.
Should win7 be set as logical?
