Mark the C: partition as active. - Partition - Mark as Active

I tried to use the start up repair disc but as before it appears to go to XP. When it's loading there's a bar towards the bottom of the screen that has green lights going left to rt. After it's loaded I have the option to pick an OP system to repair but there aren't any.

I unplugged the XP HD and get the same result.

Unplugged 7 tried to boot to XP: disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter

Now what?

Marking D as active again at boot should let you be back to where you were.

Afterwards try startup repair again using this below.

I ran the start up CD again and this X 7 showed up hit next let it run rebooted, hit enter to boot from CD again, 7 was there again hit next it ran repair again and came back with something about if I installed a camera or removable drive.....hit restart waited to let it boot to 7, it appeared to, went thru the repair deal again, rebooted, looked to be starting 7 got a BSOD, I don't know what it said flashed to quick. Rebooted on it's own and because of BSOD went into repair becuase of no start and has been doing that for the last 10min or so. This being done with just the 7 drive connected.

I had no way that I know of to change the active status. I couldn't get it to boot to either drive seperate or together.

Start up repair says it can't repair automatically.

Send more info about this problem

Don't send

When I run the repair disc should I have it boot to the disc every time?

At what point do I let it try and boot to 7?

Yeah, try running startup repair about 3 times in a row to see if it may be able to repair the boot manager. Afterwards, see if it may boot to the "Windows Boot Manager" screen to select an OS, or at least to Windows 7.

I went in and made sure this drive was active.

Ran the repair 3 x after robooting each x and without rebooting.

Each x it comes back with if I've added a device such as a camera, music player remove & restart....

The details say # of repair attempts 11

only thing with something other than 0 is number of root causes = 1 under session details

test performed all are 0x0

incl boot staus

root cause found:
boot status indicates the the OS booted successfully.
