    Hi, I'm on my laptop: Windows is on C: and the recovery partition is the 1st partition on the disk and it is the active partition. I'd like to delete the recovery partition and expand it to store my data on it, I think when I'll delete it, the active partition will automaticaly change to the C: partition and I'll probably get a "bootmgr is missing" when I'll reboot my PC, how can I change the active partition without getting this message?
    Thanks in advance.

    u can do it. first copy the bootmgr file and boot folder to the 7 partition. then repair with the 7 dvd.
    if problems, try with easybcd u can reset bcd.
