Hello,
i have a problem reparing my boot.
I had 2 disk : one with a windows XP and one empty. I have installed Windows 7 on the 2nd one and use dual boot for month. I have decided to remove the disk with XP but the boot section was on this disk.
So when i booted on the 2nd one it was like an empty disk. I have so put a windows 7 install dik, used the command line tool and made:
bootsect /nt60 D: /mbr

Open in new window

(my system part is on D: and data are on C: i dont know why)
then i have restarted and now i have a error message :
insert proper boot device apres reparation
i have tried the "repare startup" option on the windows 7 install disk, without succes.
What am i supposed to do now?
thanks
