BOOTMGR is missing message on restart

I screwed up. I was running out of room on my C (OS) partion. While I was looking at the partitions I think set the wrong partition to active. I also manually reset the size of my page file. I was prompted to restart for the page file change and now when I start it up I get BOOTMGR is missing. When I got into system repair there are no drives are found. I know I need to correct the issue by setting the correct partition to active but how do I do it?

Dell PowerEdge T110
Perc S100 controller
Raid 1
Three partitions Utility, OS and Data
Windows 2008

I have more info -
I tried using Bootrec /RebuildBcd and no drive with OS is found.
I took one of the SATA drives (running raid 1) hooked it up a usb converter and all I see is one large partition and the utility partion.

AM I DEAD??

Try rebooting with a bootable OS  CD - Try boot to recovery console. There are a couple of commands that you can use  such as fixboot  fixmbr

DTH - I have a OS CD. I went to co0mmand prompt and there are no drives found. Should I still try fixboot fixmbr? Will they work if no actual drive is found?

Did you check to see if the drive is present in the Bios. It's possible that if the drive is not in the bios that either the SATA cable or the Power cable is not seated properly

When I run System Repair I'm told there are no hard drives

I'm running raid 1. I have taken one of the drives out because I want to make sure that if I screw things up even more I still have one drive. When I start up the Dell Perc controller tells me that there is a drive and that it's degraded (due to the fact that I've removed one drive).

I just realized what one of the problems might be! I'm using a non Dell OS disc. I probably need drivers for the PERC Controller! Does that sound correct?

Boot the server using the GParted LiveCD. This is a partitioning utility, and if it sees your RAID arrays as disks, as opposed to the single disks that make up an array, you can just set the boot flag on the partition you need to boot from:

I finally got the raid drivers to load and was able to run system repair successfully
