I just installed Fedora 12 onto my free psace partition and now when i try to switch back to my Windows 7 partition it tells me my bootmgr is missing. I have tried both the restoring the startup and the command prompt bootrec /fixboot using the Windows 7 disk. How do i fix this problem?

I used the link and used the cmd to use
bcdedit /export C:BCD_Backup
attrib bcd -s -h -r
ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old
After this time it failed again, yet when i again used the Windows 7 disk it told me that it found a problem with the boot up and it would repair and restart. Natrually i clicked this and still i get BOOTMGR is missing with the only option of hittin CTRL-ALT-DELETE for restart

however i do not understand how to change it. i am hoping this could be the solution as i do not want to reinstall windows. Thanks.
