I have a machine with Factory installed Windows 7. It has three partitions

  1. System Drive
  2. Windows Partition (C:drive)
  3. Recovery Partiition

Now, there is a folder named Boot and a file named bootmgr in System Drive as well as in the Windows Partition.

How can I find which Boot and bootmgr are being used by my Windows?

Here are somethings I found:

  • Windows issues warning that the file/folder may be in use by Windows when I try to delete any of them.
  • System Drive is appearing as active when seen from the Windows Disk Management utility

You can use EasyBCD to specify which disk your machine should boot from under the "BCD install/repair" section. You can then delete the files from whatever drives you didn't select in EasyBCD.
