I have a machine with Factory installed Windows 7. It has three partitions

  1. System Drive
  2. Windows Partition (C:drive)
  3. Recovery Partiition

Now, there is a folder named Boot and a file named bootmgr in System Drive as well as in the Windows Partition.

How can I find which Boot and bootmgr are being used by my Windows?

Here are somethings I found:

  • Windows issues warning that the file/folder may be in use by Windows when I try to delete any of them.
  • System Drive is appearing as active when seen from the Windows Disk Management utility

Don't delete either! The one in use should be the one on the system drive. – William Hilsum Oct 1 '10 at 8:08

You can use EasyBCD to specify which disk your machine should boot from under the "BCD install/repair" section. You can then delete the files from whatever drives you didn't select in EasyBCD.
