Original title: I Need to Fix the Boot Sector, I think
I think I damaged the boot sector of the HD where I have W7. I'm running a ASUS Maximus II Formula motherboard with two 1TB SATA HDs in RAID 1 and one 320GB SATA HD with W7 on it. This MB uses Marvell drivers for the SATA interfaces. During the boot the Marvell message "Marvell 88SE61XX Adapter BIOS 1.1.0.L70d installing" (or something to that effect) appears for about a minute. It used to be so fast I couldn't read it. After it is finished the message "No disk found" appears.
I have attempted to use the "Repair Computer" function on the W7 installation disk. It's depending on an "image" of the machine that's stored somewhere off the machine. Since I'm one of those folks that would have to do lots of "Hoop-Jumping" to make an "Image" due to some decision at Microsoft to not deal with having an "Image" on a RAID array, I don't have an "Image" available. My next attempt was to try to re-load the driver for the SATA drives. Since during the trouble shooting I've done to date, I've been able to read the disks to attempt to find those drivers (I have them on the RAID array for use after I upgraded to W7), I believe the driver isn't damaged, just the boot sector that tells the machine where to look for W7.
Can I "re-install" W7 on the single HD where it's currently installed to "fix" the boot sector to achieve the repair without loosing the files on that HD?
