I formatted my hard drive today and after a reboot I got the message: "Hard Disk Boot Failure Insert System Disk And Press Enter" If I insert my Vista disk, hit f8 at startup and go to boot screen, click on boot from CD, then bypass the boot from CD option it will start Vista. I have checked my boot sequence and it shows booting from the right drive. My hard drives are SATA. Im stumped fellas......

Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe Motherboard
Two Hard drives but the second just for backup (not in RAID)




This is what my system information tool says on the hard drives:

UPDATE:


Changed my partition to active and re-booted, gave me this: "BOOTMGR missing"

Tried to repair with CD and the operating system was showing up on D:, dont know if this is usual but thought it show show C:

Went to C:promt in repair option and tried to rebuild bootmgr with this command:
"bootrec/rebuildbcd" restarted computer............BOOTMGR missing

Was then able to boot from second hard drive (D:) from boot screen.......finally gave up and formatted again......works fine now.
