Ok long story. I have 2 hard drives. HArd drive #1 has windows 7 RC1 installed, and #2 is storage. I got a copy of windows 7 pro and decided to install that and move over since RC1 will eventually vanish. I installed everything new and moved over music and everything to the #2 hard drive installation of windows. Then i reformatted the first hard drive and everything breaks loose. BOOTMGR is missing when I try to boot. I did startup repair like 10 times and it says successfully done, but nada. Says the problem is "Partition Table Corrupted" or something like that, and it said it repaired it, but won't let me boot. Also tried exporting the old BCD and doing a rebuild but it says the directory c:/boot/ cant be found. When i initially do the startup repair, it doesnt find any operating systems, but when i do bootrec /rebuildbcd, it finds it but when i hit 'Y' to add it to the store, it says 'Element not found'. Also i've tried bootrec /fixbmr, /fixboot all that. And when it lists the OS's and nothing is there, you can do the load drivers to browse. Well I can browse the whole hard drive and everything is fine, but just no BCD. Anyone have any suggestions? Could I reinstall windows overtop and it will keep my files there still ?
