I am getting a BSOD and from my research I keep running across that I should run bootsect.  I have put in my Windows 2008 CD but when I try to run the command I get the bootsect is not recognized as an internal or external command.  Why is this not working for me.  It appears to be very useful
Thanks
Kim

I believe it is in the "boot" folder of the SBS disc.

Yes it is in the boot folder and I can see it.  But when I try and run it I get the " bootsect is not recognized as an internal or external command...".
Any suggestions on why I'm getting this or how to get around it?
Thanks

I never found a way around this and ended up re-installing the OS
