Can't boot into Win 7 32 bit or Win 7 64 bit of my dual boot system, getting a message “NTLDR IS MISSING, press Ctrl/Alt/Del to restart.
In my previous thread, I was able to reinstall my display adapter drivers by restoring an image of my 32 bit Win 7. When I did that, I failed to designate a drive letter, which resulted in the 32 bit platform not showing in the 64 bit platform in My Computer because the order of all drive letters were changed, and some apps not being able to open.
Prior to the following changes, I was able to boot into both platforms successfully.
Its going to be a bit complicated to describe what changes I made, so please have patience with me (again). Since the 32 bit W7 did not appear in My Computer because it didn't have a drive letter, I decided to reassign drive letters to enable to access the apps that weren't running. Drive C: was in use, So I made the following changes in Computer/Manage/Disk Management to what I thought I remembered them to be before restoring the image in order to make Drive C available for the 32 bit platform:
In the 64 bit layout in My Computer, the following partition letters were changed. All partitions are NFTS.
C: Win 7 (Healthy System boot, page file Active) became D: Win 7
F: became E:
The unlettered partition Win 32 bit was given the letter C: I thought by naming the unlettered partition as C: it would restore the original partition letter order when I rebooted. I was wrong; it disabled my computer and couldn't reboot.
H: became F:
D: became G:
E: became H:
External drive L: became M:
I believe that I need to run a repair by booting with the Win 7 install disks, and I am requesting a step by step repair procedure from my gurus here at Bitbenders. I should have come here first before making the above changes.
