I am new to this forum but after searching high ad low, had to resort to asking the question myself.
Basically, my Windows 7 install is starting up with D: as default instead of C: as default - which I've been used to for the last 10 years with Windows systems!
I think this is also the reason why my user profile is not loading up, and I get a temp profile everytime.
Leading up to this mess, I had performed many activities, any of which could have caused this.
Initially, I had a setup with WinXP, Win7 and Ubuntu installed - all working absolutely fine.
The setup was something along the lines of:
sda1 winxp (ntfs, primary partition)
sda2 win7 (ntfs, logical partition)
sda5 ubuntu (ntfs, logical partition)
I no longer required winXP, so deleted the partition. This killed the boot setup of my computer, and I had to try all the win7 tools to rebuild the mbr, etc. (/fixboot, /fixmbr, /rebuildbcd, etc.) This didn't it running.
My current state of the harddrive is:
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 26602 213680533+ 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda2 26603 38159 92824515 f W95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/sda3 38160 38913 6056505 2 XENIX root
/dev/sda5 26603 30343 30049519+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda6 30344 30510 1341396 82 Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sda7 30511 38159 61432528+ 7 HPFS/NTFS
Then I used a livecd to reinstall grub to the mbr. This got Ubuntu running again.
I edited menu.lst, and got Windows 7 to boot by adding the following:
title Microsoft Windows 7
Now, for some reason, my Windows 7 boots up, but in D:
Can someone please help me out getting it started in C: instead? If you need any more system details, please let me know.
Thanks a lot
