How to fix your Master Boot Record

Courtesy of the apple2pc hackintosh blog

Last week I left my computer overnight, and when I came back all I saw was a blinking _ cursor on my screen. I rebooted and inserted the windows 7 recovery disk, but no amount of re-imaging, system restoring or startup repairing solved my problem. I did a bit of looking and a bit of asking, and apparently the problem was an issue with my Master Boot Record. Turns out this was easily rectified. Just follow these steps:


1> Boot into your windows 7 recovery disk. If you don’t have one you can find torrents here (x86/32 bit windows edition) and here (x64/64 bit edition)

2> Enter your region, language, whatever else and press ‘Repair this computer’

3> Select your windows installation and press ‘Next>’

4> click Command Prompt

5> type in ‘bootrec.exe /fixmbr

6> reboot computer and take out recovery disk

7> voila! you should be booted into windows!

  1. Look, did you all read about World of Warcraft looking to utilize Real ID on the forum? I guess they became aware that that is no way to win at wow, because they reversed the decision. Now we can all return to playing wow without worrying about compromised privacy. And they can return to focusing on BooYAH!

  2. I think instead of downloading windows from torrents its better to go to some repair centers. They will have full version software and we don’t have to worry about issues in the future. Downloaded versions may have a virus in it.

  3. Which came first, the problem or the solution? Luckily it doesn’t matter.

  4. That’s the thinking of a creative mind
