boot pc with easybcd


New Member
After restoring a windows 7 partition image into a new HD (using DriveImage XMhe machine is not restL) restarting. there isn't any error - it simply does not regognize win 7.

I tried using Win7 install disk in order to repair the boot record - but the repair tool does not recognize win 7 is installed.

I thought maybe using EasyBCD in order to create an MBR.
1. Does it make sense?

2. Is it possible, in the first place, to boot from USB / Cd with EasyBCD and then create an MBR?

You can do it manually from the command line of the Vista repair CD regardless of whether it recognizes your install or not. See for the instructions
