Troubleshoot and restore startup errors in Windows Vista
« on: 08. September 2008., 18:10:26 »
Hi Folks!  That's me again.  This time we will learn how to use the Bootrec.exe tool in the Windows Recovery Environment to troubleshoot and fix often startup mistakes in Windows Vista.  INTRODUCTION  You can use the Bootrec.exe utility in the Windows Recovery Environment (Windows RE) to troubleshoot and fix the following items in Windows Vista: -Master boot record (MBR) -Boot sector -Boot Configuration Data (BCD) store  Note: When you are troubleshooting startup issues by using the Windows RE, you should first try the Startup Repair option in the System Recovery Options dialog window. If the Startup Repair option does not repair the error, or if you must troubleshoot more steps by hand, use the Bootrec.exe utility.  MORE INFORMATION  To run the Bootrec.exe tool, you must start Windows RE. To do this, follow these steps: 1.Put the Windows Vista installation disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer. 2.Press a key when you are prompted. 3.Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or an input method, and then hit Next. 4.Hit Repair your computer. 5.Hit the operating system that you want to fix, and then hit Next. 6.In the System Recovery Options dialog window, click Command Prompt. 7.Type Bootrec.exe, and then press ENTER.  Good luck with your Windows Vista, since with this OS your still need it.  Regards, Carl
