    Post How to use the Bootrec.exe tool in Windows Recovery Environment

    You can use the Bootrec.exe tool in the Windows Recovery Environment (Windows RE) to troubleshoot and repair the following items in Windows Vista or Windows 7:

    A master boot record (MBR)
    A boot sector
    A Boot Configuration Data (BCD) store

    To run the Bootrec.exe tool, you must start Windows RE. To do this, follow these steps:

    Put the Windows Vista or Windows 7 installation disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer.
    Press a key when you are prompted.
    Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or an input method, and then click Next.
    Click Repair your computer.
    Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.
    In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt.
    Type Bootrec.exe, and then press ENTER.
