    Cloning windows 7 install onto ubuntu disc

    Hi,

    This is somewhat of a convoluted problem but I have a pre-existing windows 7 install on a separate disc than my ubuntu install (12.04). Id like to move the windows 7 install onto the other disc so i tried cloning the windows 7 partition onto a second primary partition on the disc with ubuntu. After adding the install to grub and trying it out, I get a "bootmgr is missing" message. From what I can understand, this has something to do with the 100MB 'system reserved' partition on my windows 7 disc. Not really sure where to go from here - any help would be appreciated.
