Boot menu problems

So here is the deal, I run Windows xp as my main OS, later on I installed Windows 7, and now I need to get windows server 2003, so I installed it to a new partition and guess what, I can't boot into windows 7 anymore : o

Any idea on how to solve that?

Server 2003 probably overwrote 7's bootmgr, or whatever it is they use now. I don't believe ntldr can boot to 7, so you'll need to get 7's boot loader working again. Try using your 7 DVD to repair the MBR.

Problem is I don't have my windows 7 disc no more, and tried to google it and i found some forum where they said there was a program out there that can "remake" the boot manager so I can boot Win7 again, but they never said the name of it and nor can I find it.

Anyone know about a program like that?

Here I found this webpage.

http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/68 ... epair.html

"Startup Repair is located on the System Recovery Options menu, which is on the Windows 7 installation disc. If your computer manufacturer (OEM) has preinstalled recovery options, Startup Repair might also be installed on your hard disk."

Check your hard disk for Start-up repair is a starting point I guess...

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful at this point, but I have nothing better to do this evening so I guess I can look around a bit for you.

Thanks but I found a program that worked, EasyBCD if someone else might end up having my problem some time :)

I used version 2.0 if someone is wondering :)
