Title: Fix/Backup and Restore MBR?
Post by: Tacotardis42 on September 21, 2016, 07:50:01 AM
I think a nice repair to add would be a repair to fix the MBR using bootrec.exe, as well as an option to backup and restore the MBR. I'm thinking this should be in it's own section, seperate from the other repairs, since it's only needed in very special cases. One issue would be that it would HAVE to be run from a usb drive or something similar, for obvious reasons. Does that sound feasible?

The Bootrec.exe cmds have to be run from the Windows Recovery Environment/Command Prompt so I don't think it would be feasible to do what you are asking.

No problem - as some say :)
