I have to say I prefer having the OPs run Startup Repair because it is more foolproof, and, as Greg said, often addresses problems Bootrec commands alone won't solve.

True, but in my experience, when that is the case, the bootrec commands don't work either. After all, one of the first things the Startup Repair does is automatically run the Bootrec commands. Usually, when Startup Repair fails to write the boot files in the proper location, it's because the wrong drive is set to Active (which can be corrected with Diskpart).
