How to recover from setting wrong partition active on Windows 2008 Server
Posted on 2011-02-25
I just made a huge mistake. I added a new partition to a Windows 2008 server. When i was setting it up i made it active in disk manager. I realized my mistake but I could not remove the active from the disk and since the C: drive was marked as Boot, Primary and Active I did not think it would make any difference. I wanted to take a backup of the server tonight and I was getting an error from the agent so I rebooted the server.
Now I am getting
BOOTMGR is missing
How do I recover the server. I just finished running a week long migration to this server and now I can not access it. Is there anyway to get it back.
I am running ESXi 4.1 and it is a virtual machine on the server.
