    I know that this is an old thread...
    Yes, and this is an even older solution from the legendary Mark Russinovich (of SysInternals fame).

    Thank you

    Unfortunately my English is far too bad to get hold of the technical terms - and my technical skills likewise :'-(

    When I get to this paragraph, my understanding goes black "Navigate to the disk’s hidden \Boot directory in the file dialog, which resides in the root directory of one of the disk’s volumes, and select the file named “BCD”. If the disk has multiple volumes, find the Boot directory by just entering x:\boot\bcd, replacing the “x:” with each of the volume’s drive letters in turn. When you’ve found the BCD, pick a name for the key into which it loads, select that key, and search for “Windows Boot Manager”. You’ll find a match under a key named 12000004, like this:"

    I get an explorer which starts up in the C:\Windows\System32 directory - and from then on I'm lost.

    BUT I will see if anyone in my family with better technical/English skills than me, can decipher the article for me.

    Again - thank you a lot
