Question

I am trying to install W7 Ultimate 64-bit on my new custom built system. So basically the installation works all the way up until after the first reboot when it tries to log into Windows for the first time - I keep getting a Windows Boot Manager error (at least lately I have been) stating that winload.exe is missing or corrupt, as shown below (except error code is 0x0000000e). However repairing Windows startup doesn't seem to work.

So I have tried multiple times to re-install (even using different discs and using the bootrec command), but all I end up getting is a longer list of W7 duplicates to choose from on bootup, all of which give the same exact error.

Now here's a little more info on my system:
I was (previous to my screenshots) running both of the listed 60GB hard drives on as a RAID 0 setup (yes, I changed the BIOS settings and loaded the appropriate driver during W7 installation to allow the 120GB RAID drive to be detected). The 1TB listed is my backup/storage drive.

My ultimate goal here is to remove those faulty Windows installations as bootup options and successfully install Windows 7 onto my 120GB RAID drive.

I am assuming the 1TB disk is an external usb drive and is looking for the bootmgr as it is listed as the C: drive and not finding the bootmgr.

I would start from scratch fromat the two 60GB drives if no other OS is on them unplug the ext hdd 1TB.

Follow the intructions in your motherboard manual for setting up raid and installing W7 with the raid drivers needed.
