Windows 7 - change active partition when you can't log in
Posted on 2009-05-02
I've got a PC with Windows 7 on it. There was a partition created during a previous instance of Windows, and it wouldn't let me access it with this newer version, so I went into Disk Management and "messed round" a bit.
I inadvertantly set the problematic partition to be active and have since rebooted the PC. Obviously, it's now trying to reboot from the partition that I was having problems with, and that's not a bootable partition. So, no boot, no windows, and no PC!
Can someone please give me some help with this. I really only (for now) need to get back to booting from the primary partition, and will solve the other problem at another juncture,#.
MANY thanks in advance guys. Hope someone can help!
