    There is no bootmgr on disk1, it is on disk0. That's why I suggested to copy it.

    Copy It how, exactly? The tutorial and the download didn't help. Remember it gave me the error "
    "An attempt was made to change the boot partition to a local drive which is not allowed. The boot partition must be a primary partition. Please either select a different drive or convert the selected partition to primary first, then try again."

    what do I need to do? I have downloaded like 3 things and all have been a bust

    Something else must be wrong here because D is a primary partition - as per your picture.

    Is there a way to make it in active, then active again somehow? Is it a possibility it is primary, but by not having the boot loader, that is causing it?

    Sure you can do that - with disk management (right click).

    Isn't there a boot loader folder or something that I can copy? Where would tht be?

    And yes there is a bootmgr that you copy with EasyBCD.

    How, with Easy Bcd? Also, my Mark as active is greyed out.

    We have been thru all of that. I am not going to repeat everything. Maybe somebody else likes to take over.
