Hello Experts,

I am trying to solve an issue with windows 2003. while booting it says "A disk read error occurred".
I guess its a boot sector issue so tried running Bootsect.exe /nt52 /mbr but still no luck.

The server is hosted on a Hypervisor and there is no way to Boot using CD / ISO.
If needed we can access the boot disk from any other computer using Iscsi.
Requesting your valuable suggastions.


Thank you.

Thank you for your response
Its our Internal Hypervisor based on Cloud. I am 200 % sure there is no option to use any ISO.

I was able to figure out this problem. It Happens due to corrupted BOOT Sector.
I ran below command ..

bootsect.exe /nt60 E: /mbr /force

Bootsect.exe can be found in boot folder in any win7 or win2k8 installtion DVD..
