@sexus
You are in a pickle of a situation. Apparently some of the files you modified were not changed when you updated to SP1. It should say exactly what file it is having a problem with in the first line. Find that file manually, delete it, and change the name of the backup file to the original file (don't actually delete until the backup is in place and working).

it says in the program when i try to apply it : there was a problem updating the files. failed to disable bootmgr.exe security, this is likely due to using a modified version of bootmgr.....

weird

Okay, the bootmgr your computer is using is probably already modified. What does the bootmgr option same under "Options"?

Okay, here is what you need to do:
  1. Download my hidden system drive opener (http://www.coderforlife.com/projects...denSystemDrive) and use it to open the hidden drive
  2. Then show all hidden and system files (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tuto...torial151.html)
  3. You should now see a file name "bootmgr" and one named "bootmgr - Backup"
  4. Move "bootmgr" somewhere (like you desktop) and delete it from the hidden partition
  5. Rename "bootmgr - Backup" to "bootmgr"
  6. Restart and hope it all works now.
Before using the Boot Updater again, I recommend deleting the following files (if they exist) since they are pre-SP1:
  • C:\Windows\System32\bootres - Backup.dll
  • C:\Windows\System32\winload - Backup.exe
  • C:\Windows\System32\winresume - Backup.exe
  • C:\Windows\System32\LOCALE\winload - Backup.exe.mui
  • C:\Windows\System32\LOCALE\winresume - Backup.exe.mui
Where LOCALE is your locale (en-US, de-DE, it-IT, ...)

Note to others: This is NOT the standard restore procedure. The standard procedure is to use "Restore Backups" from the "Options" menu. You only need to do the above if you used the Boot Updater, then installed SP1, then need to restore. In this case if you restore backups from within the program it will revert some files to pre-SP1.

16 backups! You must have run my program a lot. It's supposed to cleanup a bit, but I guess not completely... The times are all the same since my program copies the times when it makes the backups. Bootsect.ixe.file.bak is a file used by the system, don't touch that. Use the first backup, not 2 through 16.

The file is not in use, however Windows Explorer is confused. The file is heavily locked down by TrustedInstaller. Deleting it becomes a bi tricky since the file is on the hidden partition so using takeown / calcs like most online methods state is difficult. The easiest way is to probably download my xdel program (http://www.coderforlife.com/projects/utilities/#xdel) and click and drag the bootmgr file onto the program.
