I've been running a dual boot of Vista and Win 7 on a 190gb (C:\) and 30gb (D:\) partition quite well for a few months. I decided to get rid of the Vista partition and reclaim the space. So, I used Acronis to format the Vista partition, which then rebooted and then I used the Win 7 CD recovery tool to type "bcdboot D:windows". This worked well, got loaded into Win7. The Win 7 partition was still 30gb and the vista partition was just a blank drive. So, I used Acronis again to reclaim the space so I would have one drive. Acronis performed it's task, but typing "bcdboot c:windows" did not work. Neither did "Bootsect /NT60 c: /force" I am stumped.
