View Full Version : Return of the Computer's booting problem

stupid title

Ok. Here is the thing:

I was running Windows 7 and Windows Vista in the same disk in different partitions. I wanted to extend Vista's GB room so I decided to change the Active drive from Vista to 7 but it refused to have the option Extend. So I turned off my computer and forgot to change the active partition back to Vista and when I turned it on the next day:

BOOTMGR is missing
Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete to restart

I was like wtf. Very similar to my last problem. So I decided to replace 7 with Vista hoping that would do the trick. But it gave an error a bit after starting the installation.

It happened every time I tried to install. And when I tried replacing Vista with 7, it refused to boot the disk and gave the same BOOTMGR message after the BOOT FROM DISK

So I tried Vista to 7 again, and it refused to load the disk like 7 to Vista.

So then I tried XP to 7 because my ROM hacking files are in Vista but once again, it refuses to boot.

And yes, I have Primary and Secondary boot devices set to CD-ROM. I have no idea what the problem is.

Is there any way to solve this without harming my ROM Hacking and Document files?

Could try running killdisk and starting from scratch, most likely solution.

Do a repair installation from your Vista DVD. If that doesn't help, install GRUB.
