Could not get in using windows 7 disk gave me A boot loader error message yes i was booting from disk. booted using a xp recovery disk i had and was able to add the entries and now my view file looks like this

There are 2 entries listed in the bootloader
Default Microsoft Windows 7
Timeout 10 Seconds
Easybcd Boot Device c:\

Entry #1
Name Microsoft Windows 7 BCD ID : (Default)
Drive: d:\
Bootloader path\Windows\System32\Winload.exe

Entry#2
Name Microsoft Windows XP
BCDID: (c649a8ad-1dfo-11eo-a5c5-001a70101311)

Ah.

Yes, that would explain it. There are some cases where the BOOTMGR is out of date (usually when one upgrades from or dual-boots with Windows Vista).

Try EasyBCD | Install/Repair | Re-Create BCD Files

is there a way to fix it using easybcd? or should I just make my own windows 7 recovery disk and do a repair or will that not fix the problem either? can I update the BOOTMGR from easybcd.

Thanks

Sorry about that overlooked the bottom but the problem is now solved. I used terry 60 link
http://neosmart.net/forums/showthrea...hlight=bcd. I could not get it to boot was using nti burning software finally decided to burn with imgburn and everything loaded without a hitch had to run the repair 2 times now everything is up and running great. Thank You very Much Terry60 and Computer Guru
