fixing boot sector windows 7

Have an issue with unmountable boot in windows 7. Do not have a repair disk or original disks since son purchase it from a friend.

I used an XP disk to get in cmd and did a chkdsk /r fixing bad sectors. Can i use the fixboot or bootrec.exe commands to fix the windows 7 boot issue?

If you do not have a Windows 7 installation DVD, you can download a legal copy with SP1 integrated from here:"]Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River[/url].
Make sure you get the same version you have, Home Premium, Pro or Ultimate and 32 or 64 bit. Note that Basic or Starter is not available.

I recommend using"]ImgBurn[/url] at 4X speed (or the slowest available) to create the DVD from the downloaded .iso file.

You can do this on any computer capable of burning a DVD.

For techies or folks who work on computers:"]Create Windows 7 Universal ISO With All Editions Selection On Install with ei.cfg Removal Utility[/url].
This will fit on a 6GB flash drive or can be burned to a DVD.
