Hi all,

Today i was trying to install Windows XP on a partition drive with Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 on another
So i have 3 Partitions
I have lost the Windows 8.1 Bootloader and cannot boot into my Windows 8.1
I tried using EasyBcd but this has not helped
The only way i can think of is to reinstall Windows 8.1 again, This
will mean install Windows 8 FIRST because i have NO
media disc for 8.1 as this was a free download when i had Windows 8

I only has a Windows 8 iso that i burned onto DVD

Is there a way to reinstall the Bootloader again without having to install Windows 8
first, As this shall take a long time

Thank You
Andrew

It would help if you post a screen shot of Disk Management then we'll go from there.
