    One day, I was restoring my computer to a system image, then teh next day, I restart and it says BOOTMGR is missing, I keep trying restoring using startup repair then another system restore, but it does not find the windows c installation, and I can only boot using my portable hard drive, please help.

    All so one more thing, Can I delete partitions and put them on my main drive? + windows says its activated when I activate online but not on my computer, what the fudge?!

    I am using windows loader,
    I used the windows backup software,
    Yes I do have one internal HDD and I want to unpartition it,
    Yes I am using the neosmart one (forgot what it is called sorry) I use that because I learnt I could boot of my portable HDD using it, so now I have win 7 on it...

    Do this

    Boot from your Windows 7 DVD
    Go to Repairfunction (I think its called so, in german this called Reparaturfunktion)
    goto the Point, where you can start your console
    Type this in your console

    bootsect.exe /nt60 SYS /mbr /force

    Reboot and check for function.

    Ah, thank you, and I think you mean Command Prompt?
    I will try that, I will give a reply to you in 10-20 minutes, after I'm done watching Danny Bhoy on youtube.

    The method you told me does not work :(

    I think the problem may be more related to the fact that windows cannot find the hard drive i installed it from, that way I could reinstal windows, than after I tried your method, i done bootrec.exe /fixboot followed by /scanos and it told me that it cannot find the windows installation files, what do i do?

    Anyway I can format and install windows 7 again?

    Well, even if i did what you are telling me to do (which i will) I do not think it will work as I am using the HP ultimate key from the OEM serial keys section.

    ATM I AM TRYING TO REINSTALL WINDOWS 7 BTW.

    Meh I hate my laptop, Im starting fresh again, damn f**king windows...

    btw the only reason I didn't start fresh was because for some wierd bug i restored my comp to my sisters windows 7 sys image now it thinks it is her laptop which is genuine windows 7, as i have found out pirated versions randomly freeze on you and it is annoying.

    I have faced this problem too especially with integrated original windows 7 with sp1. If I wish to change the boot disk from one to another, windows 7 sometimes installs but creates 2 active partitions. If I make the 2nd one inactive or format it, windows 7 does not load up and gives this error on startup. On a new disk or when changing the boot disk, I need to disconnect all the hard disks except the one on which to install windows 7 on. That way, windows 7 sees only 1 disk and installs correctly.

    Nope they are clean iso's, checked the hash, downloaded from this site...

    I can't reinstall windows, as It is just trying to install from the portable hdd I am booting from not the C:\ drive
