I have two identical hard drives on my computer :

Drive A : Windows 7 installed

Drive B : To be used for back ups from drive A.No operating system installed.

Now I intend to install an O/S ( Windows 7 ) on Drive B by removing the drive A.
Then I insert the Windows DVD,shut computer down,restart again and from what
I know this should start to install Windows 7

However this does not happen,I get a message BOOTMGR missing.

My question/problem : how can I install the BOOTMGR onto drive B ?

I appreciate your help

If...the system is set to now boot from the DVD...you should not get any such message.  Sounds to me as if your BIOS is still set to boot to the original hard drive (or the second drive), rather than the DVD.

 

Bear in mind...installing Win 7 on Drive B may result in all that is currently on B to be wiped.
