    Bootrec.exercise will not run with /fixboot argument


    I am trying to resolve a Windows boot up issue using the bootrec.exe utility. The program resides in my c:\windows\system32 directory. Running the program with no arguments responds with a thick hyphen character. But when I try to run "bootrec /fixboot", I get the error message "The system cannot find the file specified."

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thx

    Use bootsect.exe utility to rebuild your computer’s boot sector code.

    Code:
    bootsect /nt60 sys
    You should be able to execute bootrec /fixboot command if needed.

    When you power on the computer what do you see?
    What steps have already been tried?

    Were you able to open the the computer's windows advanced troubleshooting menu?
    Or were you able to open a Windows 10 iso advanced troubleshooting menu?

    Find a camera or smart phone camera to take pictures and post images of the commands and results into the thread using share links (one drive, drop box, or google drive)

    Using administrative command prompt type these commands:

    Code:
    bcdedit /enum
    bcdedit | find "osdevice"
    diskpart
    list disk
    list volume
    select disk 0
    detail disk
    list partition
    select partition 1
    detail partition
    select partition 2
    detail partition
    select partition 3
    detail partition
    select partition 4
    detail partition
    select partition 5
    detail partition
    select disk 1
    detail disk
    list partition
    select partition 1
    detail partition
    select partition 2
    detail partition
    select partition 3
    detail partition
    select partition 4
    detail partition
    c:
    dir
    d:
    dir
    e:
    dir
    exit
