Default Re: Help! Im getting a Disk Boot Failure

This is why I never store my personal data on my windows drive, just in case. Every couple of weeks, I will run a virus scan and check for rootkits, then boot up into the recovery console to backup the registry. (C:\Windows\System32\config) [default/SAM/SECURITY/software/system/userdiff]

I dont know if windows 7 has a recovery console like the XP disk, but doing a FIXMBR followed by a fixboot at the console command prompt usually fixes a corrupt MBR.

Oh, i do remember that MS did release sort of a PE recovery environment for seven, but I dont know if it lets you do this.
