Alright... Got a usb drive. Got it booted to dos and opened PTEdit, as I expected the drive type was already set to 07 and it is set to bootable.
The only other option that I have found is trying to replace the mountmgr.sys file in the drivers folder of system32. But I'm not having a hard time trying to do that.
I took the file from another computer running windows 7 and put it on the usb root. When I get into DOS I see that the USB is taking up the drive letter C:, which is already the letter of one of my partitions, but not the one I am trying to copy to.
The command line I try is;
C:> mountmgr.sys (I have tried A:, E:, and D:)/windows/system32/drivers\ y
but in return I get a "Bad command or file name" message. Any ideas? I feel like the problem really lies in the mountmgr.sys file so i need to get it replaced.
