Help! Can't boot into Windows.

  1. I recently partitioned my hard drive in order to install another OS onto it. I used Acronis to do so, but I forgot to install the OS selector program before. I am not sure which method I partitioned it, maybe I did it wrong, but my computer will only try and boot on the partition that doesn't even have an OS on it. The OS I tried to install doesn't work, so now I just have a blank partition that my computer keeps trying to boot into.

    What can I do to boot into the partition that has my OS on it?


    Thanks,

    Adam

    You could actually install the new OS to it (as intended)

    You should then receive a boot loader at startup.

    As you are making partitions and installing OS's, I take it, that all is backed up on the original partition.
