I recently put in a ssd to replace my primary hard drive, and wiped all drives and did a fresh install of windows 7. I left my old primary drive in, and nothing was installed on it. I later removed the drive, but now my computer isnt booting, saying BOOTMGR IS MISSING. I put it back in, and nothing changed. I tried changing order of boot devices in bios, still nothing. I dont want to do another fresh install of windows 7. Any ideas?

The computer put the boot manage onto the old drive since it was the primary one even though you installed windows to the SSD. It is suggested that you only have 1 drive in when installing windows due to this issue. The only way I know to fix it is to do a fresh install of windows.
