I know this question has been asked before but I've tried all the usual fixes and nothing works.
Basically the hard drive had two partitions with Vista and Windows 7. I've deleted the Vista partition to make more room and expanded the Windows 7 partition to fill the drive (using GParted).
- Running Startup Repair - it doesn't find any problems.
- Setting partition to Active - worked.
bootsect /nt60 c:- worked.
BootRec /FixMbr- worked.
BootRec /FixBoot- worked.
BootRec /ScanOs- I get the message "Total identified Windows installations: 0"
BootRec /RebuildBcd- I get the message "Total identified Windows installations: 0"
BcdEdit shows a Windows Boot Manager and a Windows Boot Loader, both on C: partition.
- Rename BCD and rerun
BootRec /RebuildBcd- worked.
- Copy bootmgr from DVD - blocked because the file's already there.
I found an article here that mentioned some other commands.
C:\chkdsk /f /r- worked.
sfc /scannow /offbootdir=c:\ /offwindir=c:\windows- worked (see here).
What else can I try?
