I have windows 7 installed on my SSD, but the /boot/ and bootmgr are on my hard-drive. I want to move them to my SSD for faster booting times.
So i figured that I can fix the problem using the Windows startup repair tool.
I made a bootable windows 7 flash drive, and ran Windows startup repair. However, it exits with an error. I also can't see my OS in the list of installed OSs.
I then tried fixing via the command prompt with bootrec /fixmbr, bootrec /fixboot, bootrec /rebuildbcd.
Bootrec /rebuildbcd finds the OS, but gives me the error "The requested system device cannot be found" when i try fixing it.
Does anyone know why this is failing? I read somewhere that the Windows Repair environment doesn't support a flash drive, which is why I'm getting that error. Is this true?
Unforunately my dvd drive is playing up so I can't use it to test this.
