Windows boot issues (solved)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi There,

I just installed windows again (this time on a ssd) and i have 2 issues with booting.

  • The first being, that i can't boot to windows without having the install disk in the cd tray. Without the cd it spits out the message "cant find bootmgr" When trying to fix this problem with the windows repair solution on the installation disk, it prompts me with the choice of which os to fix. But i have only one os installed (are there traces left of an old windows installation ?) That birngs me to my second boot issue.
  • The second issue is that when i do get past the "cant find bootmgr" error message (with the cd in the tray) it ask's which os to boot. I only have one os installed (win7 64x) but it ask's which one i want to boot :
    1. Windows 7
    2. Windows 7 (? previous install)
    3. Older version of windows.

I have included a picture of my hdd setup (including the status). On that picture you can see that some disc's indeed contain weird attributes.
Since i need my pc for work, i dont want to screw it up by trying half solutions that i find on the internet, so does anyone know how to fix this ?

thanks a lot!

Have you tried to repair the start up withe the Windows disc?

Have you set the SSD as the only boot device in the BIOS?

Do you have the multiple OSes installed for a reason?

So yes i have tried it but it give me this error (see attachment)

i have tried booting only using my sdd (so without any harddrives pluged into the system)
Also it can't boot without other harddrives attacted to the system.
and i tried to set only hdd as a boot option but then i get the missing bootmgr message.

I dont have multiple OSes installed. (older hard drive which used to house my win7 install is formatted and empty).

I suggest you reinstall again following my guide.

I did install it again a few times, but the problem still existed.
When formatting the hdd that's held the boot data (not c) and re installing it again fixed the problem.

So the problem was that somehow the boot data got on the wrong drive and did not leave after a new install.
That's also why i had the option of choosing out of that many install's when booting up.smile.gif
