Hey all I know this is a common problem but so far I have been unable to fix it with any of the answers I've found anywhere. Let explain the situation in detail. I recently purchased a new OCZ 64GB SSD to install Windows 7 64 bit on. I have a separate 500 GB HDD for storage, but I completely disconnect this drive when doing my install because the Windows 7 install disk will not recognize my SSD if it's not the only drive plugged in. After installing Windows everything works fine for a time. I am able to reboot multiple times during the windows update process (btw this is a possible culprit for the issue that is occuring) up until the first 5 security updates for Sevice Pack 1. After installing these updates and shutting down my PC will not boot up and I get the bootmgr is missing error. I have at this point hooked my HDD back up, but it is well after my Windows install has finished, so there doesn't seem to be any way that Windows is writing the bootmgr file to my HDD because I have booted up multiple times with neither the windows install disk in the dvd drive nor the HDD plugged in. This has happened 4 or 5 times to me now and it's getting really frustrating. I'm trying to figure out if something's wrong with my SSD or if there's some update in Windows 7 sevice pack 1 that is incompatible with my hardware. Thanks again for your time.
