    You can try this procedure - but you have to first deactivate your C: partition. You may also have to fix the MBR. I am not certain though whether that will help you since you deleted the bootmgr.

    hi Hellfire,

    you could us ISO2DISK, not ISODISK (ISO2disc - download tag - page 1 - Softpedia)

    you can create a bootable USB stick for Windows7 or Windows8, do not know UBUNTU, since i do not use it.

    Anyway it worked for me.

    And install what you want, 7 or 8

    I don't understand...
    I need to install win 7 or win 8 on the old partition
    it will delete my windows folder
    and all the data (user folder)
    and the programs (program files)
    will not delete?
