Hi

System:  1x SSD 120GB  (C:\)  Win7 OS,  1x  SATA 2 TB Drive   (D:\).

Installed Windows 7 on SSD  C:  but BootMgr is on wrong Disk D:\.

If I removing the D drive Windows won't boot anymore. Try'd to "repair" but Windows setup does not detect the installed Windows7 on C:  

What to do? How can i move/re-create the boot stuff on the correct HD?

Thanks!
