  1. I'd like to help you, but I don't understand your question.
  2. its because you installed windows 7 with 2 hard drives connected so both get written to the boot record

    disconnect drive D

    fix boot record

    then reconnect drive D for storing data

    due to some reasons i have installed my windows7 OS in D: drive and now I have changed my OS and I installed windows7 OS in C: drive, and before installing the OS I have formatted both C: drive and D: drive during progress of OS installation. Now what my problem is OS is installed in C: drive and Booting Files are installed in D: drive. I have reffered google and I copied the Booting Files into C: drive but Iam unable to format my D: drive and I dont know my system uses Booting files in C: dive or it uses Booting Files in D: drive
