Question Regarding Recovering the Vista Bootloader from the DVD

#1
hi,

I have an issue with my Vista SP2 laptop after it crashed whilst testing my Drive Image 2002 CD (although I had made no changes!!). Firstly, it kept booting up in the Vista Startup recovery mode, so I ran some dignostics and tryed to fix the boot records as per MS KB Article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927392

This has now given another issue meaning that the laptop no longer gets past
the 'Windows Book Manager' saying that the a required file is missing or
corrupt. The file is : CLASSPNP.SYS, and the error status is 0xc0000221.

I have tried to follow you instruction in the "Recovering the Vista Bootloader from the DVD" article, but am recieveing an error in Step 4 where you manually add the BootLoader reference to the store: -

bcdedit.exe /store c:\boot\bcd.temp /create {bootmgr} /d "Windows Boot Manager"

I recieve the message: -

The specified entry identifier is not valid
The parameter is incorrect.

Any further idea?

Chris

Addendum:

oops Curly barcket needed '{ }', not the curved ones I typed '( )'

Addendum:

Hmm, still no joy - will try to run sfc, to see if that works

Addendum:

nope - cannot run sfc - I get and error that reads: -

"Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation"
