Troubleshoot and repair startup issues in Windows,
September 9, 2008 at 2:39 AM

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 restore 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 mistakes by using the Windows RE, you should first try the Startup Repair option in the System Recovery Options dialog box.
If the Startup Repair option does not repair the error, or if you must troubleshoot more steps by hand, use the Bootrec.exe tool.

MORE INFORMATION

To run the Bootrec.exe tool, you must launch Windows RE. To do this, follow these steps:
1.Put the Windows Vista setup 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 click Next.
4.Click Repair your computer.
5.Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.
6.In the System Recovery Options dialog box, hit 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
