Hello all.

I have just made a clean install of win 7 on my pc and now every time i restart it comes with this message: Bootmgr is missing. Press ctrl+alt+delete to restart.

I have searched high and low on the net now and none of the solutions fits to my problem.

I have found out that during install win 7 saw fit to put the bootmgr on my F drive and then decided to hide it. ok. i found the F drive again but it points to F instead of C. How to change that?

Here is my BCDEDIT:

I failed to mention that i CAN get into win 7. if my installation disk is in the drive.
And i cant get the repair to work. When i try to boot from dvd it comes with only one selection and that starts the installation all over. And im not quite ready to go there yet.

Addendum:

Never mind. found out to use the EASYbcd tool to change the boot drive! :tongueout:
Now it boots WITHOUT the instalation disk and with no messages! Thanks a bunch for a very usefull tool!!!!
