    Deleted wrong parition and now can't boot into Windows


    please help!

    I tried this method, forgetting my dual boot was configured to use W8 VHD (I should've removed the VHD first insteasd of just deleting the partition).

    Now I can't boot into Windows 7 (or obviosuly Windows 8).

    I get this:

    Your PC needs to be repaired.

    A required device isn't connected or can't be accessed.

    Error Code 0xc000000e

    Your PC doesn't have the Windows Recovery Environment installed. You'll need to use the recovery tools on your installation media. If you don't have any installation media (like a disc or USB device), contact your system administrator or PC manufacturer

    Press Enter to try again
    Press F9 to use a different operating system

    It appears to still be trying to look for the W8 partition. Please help

    Perhaps fixing the bootmgr will help.
