I'm tempting to install Windows 7 on a separate drive to duel boot with XP. The install went fine as did a complete download of updates. When I did a restart Windows 7 failed to bring up a boot menu and the computer booted directly into XP. It was then I realized that when I was using GParted I had forgot to set the Windows 7 partition with a boot flag. Don't know if that had anything to do with it but a boot menu still does not automatically come up. If I manually bring up the boot menu (F8) and and select the Windows 7 partition it says "BootMGR is missing. I tried doing a repair with the Windows 7 disk but still no luck. Did I goof up the install? Is there something I missed in GParted? What would happen if I did a complete, not a repair, install?
