    That is probabaly because it couldn't identify the system partition.

    Just had the 'opportunity' to use this tutorial. Thanks by the way. Great job.

    My experience with was:

    Got to the section - bootsect /nt60 SYS /mbr - It did nothing except show me how to get to the help section of bootsect which was - bootsect /help.

    Looking through there I noticed it mentioned using the actual drive letter which can be seen in the screen when you are identifying your cd-rom.

    So instead of - bootsect /nt60 SYS /mbr - I used - bootsect /nt60 F: /mbr - & a problem solved.

    Thanks again.
    Thanks for letting us know! Glad you got your solution.

    Cheers!

    Hello robohamid, and welcome to Windows Seven Forums!

    My first suggestion would be for you to try the "Startup Repair".
    Startup Repair

    The "Active Partition" holds the "Boot Code". When starting up, the computer looks for the partition "Marked" as "Active". If it can not find the partition with the "Active" mark, you will get that warning message.

    If a startup repair cannot restore the "Active" mark to the correct partition, then you may need to download this software: Partition Wizard

    Best Free Partition Manager Freeware for Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP 32 bit & 64 bit. MiniTool Free Partition Manager Software Home Edition.

    and use the software to mark the correct partition active yourself. Please let us know if you need any assistance with this?

    Cheers!

    I have no way of knowing which partition has the boot code from the small amount of information you have given.

    I suspect what you posted as the "System" partition is the very small "System Reserved" partition that has the boot code and should be be the "Active" partition, but I can not see that from here. I would suggest you mark that partition "Active" as a test and see if the computer will boot correctly.

    If it does not boot correctly, you can mark another partition ( like "C" ) active and test to see if that will allow the computer to boot correctly. If after testing all partitions you are still not able to boot correctly, then mark "C" active and do the "Startup Repair." The repair software should be able to write the boot code to the "C" partition and allow the computer to boot correctly.

    Cheers!
