I have a windows 2012 server and when it was installed there were 2 drives in the computer. A system reserved partition was created on the second drive. That drive is now out of the system, so the computer will not boot.
To get the boot system onto the windows partition I have followed these steps -
boot from installation disk to the repair computer command line
Using diskpart I've made the windows drive (c:) active
I then ran the following commands:
/rebuildbcd says "total identified windows installations :1"
when I choose "y" i get the error
The requested system device cannot be found
I'm able to go into the C:\ drive and see the files. there is not C:\boot however the C:\windows\boot folder does exist.
Should I be copying the boot folder to C:\ and running /rebuildbcd again?
What else could I do?
Since the OS itself is intact, i'm trying to keep from a fresh install.
Thanks in Advance,
