help can't boot to windows 7 after reinstalling Vista for dual boot
 
Had vista 64bit on another drive and Windows 7 on my main drive, but formated my 64bit vista drive and installed the 32bit version because of software issues. Now Windows 7 isn't showing up anymore because of this.

yes, because the bootloader was on the primary partition aka vista drive.

try this

it might be able to detect win7 partition, and add the info to bootloader.

I noticed that too.

The bootmgr likes ot move around from drive to drive and when you format that drive its gone.

I had an issue with a setup where i had the sata raid on sata ports 4 and 5 and the sotrage dirve on sata 0 and 1 and it put the bootmgr on sata drive 0 instead of the os drive which i don't why it would do that since the OS is intact on sata ports 4 and 5.
