Multiple win7 partitions possible?

Wed Dec 09, 2015 5:43 am

Hi, I have used BIBM on an older xp machine and copied the xp partition to over 10 other partitions on the same drive and it's quite easy and straight forward.

I am trying to do the same with win7 but after i create a second partition it doesn't boot that second partition and gives error "bootmgr missing". I think it has something to do with the reserved partition that's used and needed to boot. Is there a way round this?

Problem solved, removed the reserved partition as detailed in instructions.

Because of how you installed it. You'll need to move over the boot files
from the boot partition and then you can just copy the partition. See
