Addition for Converting a GPT Data or Windows Disk to MBR/EM

Hello

Thanks a lot for your great description for this problem
Converting a GPT Data or Windows Disk to MBR/EMBR
http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/kb/article.php?id=580

We used it today and had big problems, because Windows did not start after the procedure... and the Solution was simple:
Prerequisites: The *original Windows 7 System Recovery CD* should be created
If at step 23. Windows does not start, then just start with the original Windows 7 System Recovery CD and select to repair the boot files.

We tried everything else with fixmbr and those tools - none solved the problem.

kind regards,
Thomas

Creating and testing the repair media is listed in the "Before you begin" section.

Do you remember what the boot error was?

It sounds like either bootmgr wasn't copied or the BCD file wasn't created or was incorrect. Did you verify they existed after running the commands for them (steps 19 & 20)?
