Okay, i recently partitoned my computer again and added a new partition for pro. I used acronis disk director and i did have to mess with it so i can understand y the mbr isnt working. HOW CAN I FIX IT SO I CAN BOOT UP TO ALL OF MY PARTITIONS? I try added things manually to it but it would but it wouldnt work. And by manually i mean using the repair on the windows disc and also going to the properties of my computer-->Advanced-->Startup and recovery and tried adding more with the notepad option. Can some one please help me.

PS. I can still see 3 hdds in My Computer which are the 3 partitions from my 500gb hdd. Thanks

A boot loader is pretty easy. Try GAG. It can be installed to the HDD and boot up to 9 operating systems. It's very flexible so any changes you make later are easily accomodated. It also has a timer that can be set that will then boot the chosen default OS.

Please describe your system, what operating systems, where your partitions are and how configured, and so on.

If you are using Windows OS's, the last installation should have configured the MBR. Is Linux involved?
