I already set the "sys reserved" to drive S. I can't change it back now. So i''m assuming if i try to reboot, the computer will not work because "sys res" is not on the F drive anymore... Right?

Ok I managed to capture the screen partially when running bootsect.exe. Attached.

It says "Boot sect restoration tool. bootsect.exe updates the master boot code fr hard disk partitions in order to switch between BOOTMGR and NFLDR. You can use this tool to restore the boot on your computer.

Run bootsect/help" for help".


Hmm... This is taking a lot longer than 20 seconds.

Anyone know how i can change my sys reserve back to F?

Dude the file you sent through pm is a zip. In the zip is "bootsect.exe", nothing else. Where is the AUTO BOOT REPAIR? I can't even find that executable, there is no other file in the zip besides bootsect.

Send me the right files, or at least links to the right files, and i'll follow instructions fine.

I couldn't find it. Can you upload it again please?

I have to start work on this computer. I need to leave the computer rendering for a couple days non-stop. I need to make sure it will run correctly before i start rendering.

Is the file downloadable from the internet? I can't find it when searching.
