Windows 7: Windows 7 installation boot problems

Windows 7 installation boot problems

I currently have 4 drives. I had Vista on my primary drive1, no OS secondary slave drive, Linux on my sata drive1, and Windows 7 64x on my sata drive2. I recently deleted Vista and installed windows 7 86x on my primary drive. Before installing W7 86x the windows boot option gave me the choice to choose between the three OS and now it does not. The W7 x64 drive is accessible and I'm able to view all folders but I can't get it to boot and that is where I have all my programs and work.

How can I get the boot manager to recognize my windows 7 64x drive which is not the primary drive?

Press the F8 key repeatedly at boot up or use the Startup disk.

Try this:

Startup Repair
Note: You may need to do startup repair 3 to 4 times.

Problem solved

I followed your instructions and I inserted the recovery disk and windows recovery picked up the boot manager was not correct and automatically reset it and after booting back up it showed windows 7 (recovered) and now I can boot into both W7's but not linux, but I will take what I can get for now.

Thanks for the help!!!
