    Ack! I accidentally set a disk as active, and now I can't boot up. :'(

    Hey guys!

    SOOOOOO. Long story short, I set my C:\ drive to "active" using the Disk Manager in Windows 7 64-bit. I figured this would be okay, because... you know... C:\ contains the \WINDOWS\ directory.

    Guess I was wrong.

    I can't seem to boot up my computer at all now, and despite all of my searching, I can't find a safe way to undo what I did. How do I get back into my computer without deleting everything I have?

    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

    EDIT - I got it working using the Ultimate Boot CD. Thanks anyway!
