It's not a new problem, and there;s a lot of info out there, but I'm still facing it. I cloned my "7" partition to my new drive and tried to fix the startup using boot DVD, but the damn installer can't "see" the OS, and the "startup repair" and other fixing tools are stuck. I CAN reinstall and reconfigure everything, but it's a LOT of trouble, particularly configuring the HIPS and firewall. Both drives are "mbr". And I'm not booting UEFI. Any ideas? Can Neogrub fix it? I kinda created and formatted the partitions already using Linux, to get rid of the extra stupid PRIMARY partition 7 creates,,, (I mean AFTER the cloning stuff failed).
