Multi-Boot W7 W2K8 W2K3

By scallau ·
Dear friends,

I was very silly because I've lost my partition. I had my own computer with 2 disks. I was using W7RC and I needed to create a test machine with W2K3+W2K8.

When I installed W2K8, things go well and I got a multiboot environtment with W7 or W2K8. But when I installed W2K3 I lost my access to the other systems. I've tried unpluging the disc with W2K3 but the system said it was unable to boot my W7...

How do I recover my W7 and (if is possible) the W2K8.

I own 2 x 500GB SATA II H disk 0 with 2 partitions W7 and Data; and disk 1 with W2K3 and W2k8 partitons.

Any idea?

You need to fix the boot record and loader.

Use BCDEdit. You should be able to do this off the install disk if necessary, or from whichever OS will load.

There is a GUI for BDCEdit, if you hate the command line: EasyBCD.
