Setup Bootman to boot into either Haiku or Windows 7. Reboot the system and get the message:

Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart

Disk Partitions are:

/dev/disk/scsi/0/0/0 - FAT32 39MB

/dev/disk/scsi/0/0/1 - Windows NT File System 14.6GB

/dev/disk/scsi/0/0/2 - Windows NT File System 252.15 GB (Windows7)

/dev/disk/scsi/0/0/3 - Be File System 31.25GB (Haiku)

So the boot menu does not appear and you cannot even select to boot into Haiku?

Is this a MBR or a GUID partition table? Bootman supports MBR partition table only.

This article from MS KB should help you to restore your boot record:

Menu does appear and I am able to select and boot into Haiku.

Then it seems the boot loader is missing from the windows partition. Maybe the above mention article can help, but I don't know.

To which partition did you point the Windows 7 entry in Bootman? /dev/disk/scsi/0/0/2 ?

You might try pointing Bootman to either /dev/disk/scsi/0/0/0 or /dev/disk/scsi/0/0/1 to boot Windows 7, as Windows 7 has the tendency to put BOOTMGR on another partition than itself.

idefix, I looks like you were right. I had to repair the disk and then have Bootman point to /dev/disk/scsi/0/0/1.

Please close.
