Use the following information to update the Master Boot Record (MBR) of your hard disk drive when your system cannot boot into Windows after installing or upgrading the Rescue and Recovery (RnR) program.
Installing or upgrading the Rescue and Recovery application will update the master boot record. During the next boot, the SafeGuard Easy application might report that the MBR has changed and prompt the user to either allow the change or undo the change. Users should allow the change. If these changes are not applied, the computer might not be able to successfully boot into Windows.
Downloading the update
Click either the repairmbr.iso or repairmbr.exe file link to download the file from the Web page.
When prompted, select a drive and directory in which to save the downloaded file, be sure to select a path that does not have a space in its name.
Extracting the update
Insert a blank CD or 1.44MB floppy diskette into the CD drive or diskette drive.
Locate the file you just downloaded.
To create a CD version repair kit, select a CD burning tool and create the repair kit from the repairmbr.iso file.
To create a diskette version repair kit, double-click the repairmbr.exe icon and follow the onscreen prompts. The necessary files will be extracted to the diskette.
Installing the update
Close all open applications.
Insert the floppy diskette or CD into the appropriate drive; restart the computer and make sure your system will boot from the Diskette or CD drive.
When the update starts, follow all onscreen prompts.
When the update completes, restart your computer and verify that it operates properly.
