    No, nothing else.
    Now I cannot even open the desktop gadget dialogue by right-clicking the desktop and going to 'Gadgets'.

    Robert,

    The problem is that I want to remove fedora 12 and the grub that the fedora installation has installed.
    I want to came back to the previous state, when no grub nor fedora was installed on my pc, just windows 7.
    And as I told you when I perform the procedure I get "Missing operating system message".
    I have reinstalled fedora only to recover the capacity of booting windows 7.
    Could you help me?.

    Thanks a lot,

    Enrique;

    I would be very happy to try. I have done this several times on my test computer with complete success. It would help me if you would capture a picture of the Disk Management window from Windows 7, and attach it to a post. If you need help doing that, here are two links to show how:

    OK, I would suggest you start a new thread and describe your symptoms so the Forum can assist you (as this is no longer a MBR issue).

    Thanks for the screen shot!

    If the last two partitions (volumes) are for Fedora (you must confirm this so you do not delete anything you want to keep!), I would suggest to you to delete them.

    Then, right click on the first partition (the 100MB Reserved) and mark it "Active."

    Then boot to your Windows 7 install DVD and follow the MBR tutorial to restore booting to Windows.

    Here is another link where the Linux OS is Ubuntu, but the procedure is the same:

    Please let us know if you have any problems with this.

    Cheers!

    Robert,

    GREAT !!!!!!

    It worked!!!!

    Now I have a question.

    I have 2 partitions, one is 207MB "not assigned" and the other is 37.37GB "free space".

    Is there any way to change the state of 207MB partition to "free space"?.

    Thanks a lot and best regards,

    Yes, there is a way. If you would please, make another screen shot of your Disk Management drive map? I would like to see it before I suggest any changes.

    Cheers!

    Okay, my problem still exists! I tried Tune-Up again, but the way I had it mind to fix it did not work. It only messed up everything until System Restore saved me. Any other suggestions?

    PS:
    I want to use Tune-Up to change a theme setting, but then I want to wait out the last 8 days of my free trial.
