the issue is i was doing a clean install on the ssd, so my hard drive wasnt even connected and now i am denied access to both.when the ssd is plugged in i go to the boot menu and boot from the windows cd it still turns up the message "Loading operating system... BOOTMGR is missing Press ctrl alt del to restart". I now cannot use my pc at all because my windows on the hard drive is screwed too for w/e reason. I cannot just reinstall, it will not allow me. How can i just reinstall, i feel like im missing something. Another thing that came to mind is the windows cd i got is from a tech friend, can i only use this copy on 1 drive? When i was installing windows on the ssd i didnt even get to enter a windows authentication code so i dont think this is the issue, but it just seems odd that a failed install on the ssd would cause my windows on my hdd to crash when it was not even connected during the ssd issuee!? Please can someone point me in the right direcion...i wish i could just "reinstall"
