A friend of mine was using the computer, he said it was acting "funny" so he shut it off. In other words I have no clue what happened immediately before or after. However, this is what I have figured out:
C: partition is blank D: partiton is unchanged (personal documents, pictures etc) E: partition did not exist before tonight. It has what used to be on the C: partition (windows directory, users, program files etc)
Boot manager is assigned to C partition and Boot Loader is assigned to E:.
Background: This is a clean install of retail Windows 7 Pro.
Is there anyway to change the boot manager to E:? At this time I have no access to windows, only the the command prompt either with the cd or if I leave it sit the system recovery option comes up after awhile.
Any help on this is appreciated. Thank you.

It is all the one hard drive, correct? and literally it's all been re partitioned? as in was there originally an E:?
Goe into BIOS and change boot order to E: first. Don't let that guy touch the computer, He' clueless.
I'm afraid you can only change the boot order for physical devices, not for individual partitions.
Just as a matter of interest, what size is the blank C: partition? If it's about 100MB then it may be the hidden system partition that Windows creates that has somehow been unhidden and assigned a drive letter.
