    Hi,

    I just got a new Laptop Dell with windows 7. Now, if I try to install my FD-ISR 3.32.235 on it, I receive the following message : FD-ISR requires that windows system volume be the boot volumeo_O

    If I check my hard disk, I see the 3 following partition :
    - FAT 16
    - Recovery (NTFS) status : system
    - C:OS (NTFS) status : boot

    If I make the partition C:OS active, will my system be able to reboot or will my system won't be able to reboot?

    Thanks,
    Atomas31

    Probably, it won't be able to boot (it depends from where your bootmgr file is located).

    The correct procedure is the following:
    Copy all the files from your recovery partition to your OS partition with robocopy; use RichCopy (robocopy guide) to copy them.

    Then you should update your OS partition bootsector with a Vista bootsector https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=1566963&postcount=141 by using the command:
    bootsect /nt60 c:

    After that you can make active your c: partition.
