My C: drive with all my software and activated Windows 7 died. I had recent images made with Acronis True Image but they always re-imaged with a missing BOOTMGR. Tried all I can think of, and the Windows Repair disk was no help. I have a Windows 7 image I made earlier that, if I can make it go, would at least save me installing everything My data is all on a backup drive, protected by Carbonite, so data is no proble, just OS and installed software. I guess I needed to have saved the catalog for the Windows image, because a Restore does not recognized. So I make an image of my newly installed Windows 7, and it will restore just fine. I copied my older backup into the WindowsImageBackup folder, but still not recognized. So I am looking to find out if I can open and edit the Catalog so that my Windows backup from about three weeks ago can be used.
HELP!!!!! This will be a disasterous loss of time, plus I'll probably have to buy Office again for too many activations.
