  1. Ill try to summarize it as much as i can

    I have a running win7 in drive C:/
    Decided to install linux so i partitioned drive C to have drive D
    Installed Linux in Drive D - successfull
    after restart, i get "BOOTMSG is missing" at startup (me: :( wtf!?)
    so, i ran recovery disk and prompted me "....version is not compatible..." (me: :( :()
    due to my great desperation, i deleted drive D: Linux instead installed Win 7 again at drive D. which worked (yay! :D)

    turns out my previous primay drive which is C:\ turned to D:\, and my newly installed win7 is now at C:\ :(

    how do i fix this, i want to bring my previous OS which is now at D:\ to bring it back to c:/

    also, to achieve dual booting linux and windows but thats another story.

    That should be "BOOTMGR" not "BOOTMSG", right? You want Linux on C and Windows 7 on D?

    well technically yes, but ive somehow fixed my own issue faster than user support here in techspot which is kinda sad lately..

    We don't get paid for this help and we all have other responsibilities like every one else. Glad you got it working though :)
