Thanks for the reply! I'm trying to use the Easy BCD software. My 1st question was/is, is this software effective with a corrupted OS using a HDD enclosure?Sorry, I'm not clear on what you're trying to do?
Reading what I wrote, I see how that would not be to clear. I DID use ImgBurn to create a bootable disk (of EasyBCD). My question is, what do I do (as far as which program/switch) to effectively use the bootable disk; because that GUI is very different from the standard software GUI. Bottom line.... When the bootable disk loads the application, what do I do next? In detail please. THX again.How did you create the recovery disc ?
There's no ISO on the CD.
The ISO becomes a CD when you burn it with ISO burning software.
Did you follow these instructions for downloading the ISO.
The whole of the downloaded file, should be burned with a compatible app.
We recommend Imgburn, because it's free and it works.
I've done all of that before even trying to use Easy BCD. None of the options worked, because I don't have a repair disks that allows the bootsect.exe command. Is there anything else I can try?You can't run EasyBCD from the bootable CD. To fix the bootloader with the bootable CD, see the instructions here: Recovering the Vista Bootloader from the DVD - EasyBCD - NeoSmart Technologies Wiki
Anybody have any info on this?I've done all of that before even trying to use Easy BCD. None of the options worked, because I don't have a repair disks that allows the bootsect.exe command. Is there anything else I can try?
I'm assuming Easy BCD doesn't work on a drive in a HDD enclosure?
Would a clean install be a viable solution?
Ah, it is nice to know I am not the only one still using that disk! In fact, it helped bail me out once again just this morning.... I simply used my trusty Win 98 CD (for the Fdisk utility) ...
Excellent info LEE!
