Hey, I was fiddling around with my recording drive a few days ago and I hit the "Mark Partition as Active" option on my X Drive(recording drive) and now everytime I try and boot up my system it gives me "Missing BootMGR Press ctrl+alt+del to reboot"
Meaning my system is trying to boot from my X drive and not my C drive, easily override it by unplugging my X drive and starting up my system but annoying when I have to do that in the long run.
the problem is that he just make the wrong partition as active, not the disk Boot Sequence. To solve this problem, you could try the three methods below:
A-the Win PE bootable CD to boot in WINPE,and then reactive your C drive.
B-use other partition software which integrate bootable CD
C- Connected your hard drive to another computer as a slave drive, then reactive your boot partition.
D-If you know how to use Dos Command, you could also reactive your partition in dos mode.
I selected "mark partition as active" on my recording drive. Now when I put up my computer it thinks my recording drive is my main system drive and will error and say "Missing BootMGR Press ctrl+alt+del to reboot" So I have to unplug that drive and reboot and It works.
Ill try to mark partition as active on my main drive (c drive) but its greyed out.
Question: How do I "Unactivate" my E drive and stop it from acting like my primary drive?
Please help ASAP i done the same thing as you bippster and i can't boot anything it just pops up saying my BootMGN is missing and i don;t know how to open the command propt like you said is there a certin button i need to press? please help
