    Okay I have done so many steps on BCDEDIT and Bootrec and Bootsect that i just dont know what ive done now ... Okay at first my computer didnt boot up (WINDOWS 7) because Bootmgr was failing and it happens to me a lot since i mess with the inside of my computer on a daily basis with other things... okay anyway well i was going to rebuild the BCD and i did something wrong because now when i do a BOOTREC /ScanOS in Windows RE enviroment i get

    D:\WINDOWS.old\Windows

    if im not mistaken i think i redirected everything to Windows.old or something in other steps prior to this..

    BCDEDIT looks like this..

    Windows Boot Manager
    ----------------------------------
    identifier {Bootmgr}
    device partition =C:
    description windows boot manager
    default {default}
    displayorder {default}
    timeout 10

    Windows Boot Loader
    --------------------------------
    identifier {default}
    device Partition=C:
    path \windows\system32\winload.exe
    description windows vista
    osdevice partition =C:
    systemroot \windows


    I am only running one current Hard drive and it has apparently two parts one Being C: AND D: But C: is called System Reserve or something on those terms and is only 100 Megs while D: contains the actual windows installation so i was wondering how i can redirect the boot again

    -thanks in advance, Chris

    Oh i see.. But the Bootloader is already programed to use what i had changed it to which was a completely different part of the drive and i dont remember how i did that exactly lol... which is why i have everything all mixed up at the moment, im pretty sure im going to end up just reinstalling windows 7 because i think i edited to much to even reverse, thanks a lot for ur help bcarroll

    Have you tried booting up with your original DVD abd repairing the startup? Sometimes, for unknown reasons, it needs two shots?
    Otherwise download and run Easybcd (free) and use it tor epair you boot procedures.
