How to Make Disk Bootable Win7

Guys, I just got my PC back from repairs (self inflicted with a botched bios update). They got everything working just fine but I lost my dual boot functionality. I did have a Win 7 OS on C and another Win7 OS on F:. When I booted I could select which one I wanted. I use one of them primarily F but need to boot into the other occasionally C:.

Now somehow they moved all of the data that was on C: to H. C now has no files except for the boot info ( Boot, System Vol Info, and boot mgr).

I don't want to take it back to them.

When I look at Disc Management I see the F:'s property's are (Boot, Page File, Crash Dump, Primary Partition). Disk C: (Active Primary Partition), Disk H: (Primary Partition).

I need to make H: bootable or copy everything to C: and make that bootable. Probably the easiest thing to do would to make H bootable. So, the big question is: How do you make a drive bootable?

I hope this makes sense.

The only way, that does not includes unending hours of torment as you DOS copy file after file from the a clean Windows install onto that drive, to make drive H: bootable, is to reinstall Windows on that drive.
