    I bought a new Western Digital Black 640gb and installed windows 7 on it and everything, so both of my hard drives loaded windows 7.
    I decided to format my old hard-drive(750gb) and keep my 640gb hard-drive as my one primary hard-drive and my other hard-drive as just storage.
    Once I formatted my 750 gb hard drive, I'm unable to load windows with my 640 GB hard-drive !
    What the hell did I do?!
    Under Disk Management,
    640gb: Disk 0: Healthy (System, Active, Primary Partition)
    750gb: Disk 1: Healthy (Boot, Page File, Crash Dump, Primary Partition)

    Did I install WIN7 wrong or something?

    What can I do, to make my DISK 0 my hard-drive to actually boot up and work like normal.
    I had to reinstall windows 7 on my 750 gb hard-drive just so I can come online and ask for help .

    If someone knows how I can make my 640 gb hard-drive work again, please help

    Thanks!

    Fixed!
    "Stool" gave the idea for this one.
    Quite simple actually.

    " Insert dvd. Choose repair. Enter appropriate info. Choose command prompt. type: "bootsect /nt60 ALL". press enter."

    It worked perfectly :)

    I have a question though,
    If it's not too much to ask, right after my BIOS loads up, I get the "Windows Boot Manager" screen.
    Is there anyway to get rid of this?
    First option is: "Windows 7" <---the one that I formatted so it doesn't work anymore
    Second option: "Windows 7 Ultimate (Recovered)"

    Is there a way to get rid of this screen and have a normal boot? Without the "windows boot manager'?
