For each computer, I have a licensed copy of Windows 7 Pro, 64 & 32.  If bootrec is on it, where from do I extract bootrec from?  Or, is such on BC downloads?

  Addendum from above morning's post -- where from and how do I extract bootrec from my legal Windows DVD?

Ok, when I get home, will ISO my Windows DVD and search for the related files...

After some rooting around, found my answers!

1) Boot from the Windows 7 DVD      (Yes, patience is a virtue!)
2) Click "Next"
3) Click the "Repair your computer" link
4) Choose the "Command Prompt" option in the SYSTEM RECOVERY OPTIONS menu
5) Type the following commands, exactly as written below, in the order in which they are presented, and press ENTER after each command:
Bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup
ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old
Bootrec /rebuildbcd

...and I can also follow dc3's advice which he gave in another thread.

Mods, this thread be closed!  Thanks!

This topic is dead, I left things alone. SysRes partition and Windows 7, once such becomes self-aware, is best left As Is. revisiting Yul Brenner: "As it is written, so let it be done!"
