|I had Windows Vista installed (C:) and then I decided to try out the new Windows 7. I created a new partition (D:) and then preceded to install Windows 7. I selected custom install and went through that process. Windows 7 booted up fine and everything was working. Then, ignorantly, I decided to go back into the Disk Management and I saw that Vista Partition (C:) was active, and the Windows 7 Partition (D:) was not active. I decided to make the Windows 7 partition active.|
Upon restarting the computer I get the error message "BOOTMGR is missing". I am pretty sure this is just related to the fact I made the Windows 7 partition active, but I cannot for the life of me find an easy to solution to put the Vista (C:) partition active again.
I tried using Gparted, but the GUI would just turn my screen black. I then tried using the recovery console from Windows XP CD but I wasn't sure if it had the ability to make partitions active. I do not have a Windows Vista CD.
Whats the easiest way to fix this problem? Setting the C: back to active would fix the problem? Or do I need to fixmbr or any of those others things.
