I have a 2009 MBP. For a long time I've had a Bootcamp partition on the hard drive, recently I bought a second SSD and installed it in the Optibay and installed Windows on it. As it was going well I thought I'd give OSX the full hard drive so I used Bootcamp Assistant to remove the Bootcamp partition on drive #1. Drive #2 still has the Windows 7 so I restarted expecting REfit to pick up the changes and assumed I would be working as normal. However when I try to start Windows I get a black screen and the words:

Bootmgr is missing.
Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart.

Furthermore REfit is still showing the old partition-based Windows install as a boot option but I know its not there.

Is there a way of fixing all this without wiping, repartitioning and reinstalling Windows using Bootcamp?

  • Did you select (in boot camp) "restore" "restore to single partition"? – SoilSciGuy Aug 7 '14 at 0:45
  • I recall reading something about deleting the drivers on the second hard drive (windows). Removing Windows partition with boot camp, then adding the windows drivers after.. – SoilSciGuy Aug 7 '14 at 0:47
