Windows 2003 : Bootcfg Failed to add the selected boot entry to the boot list

Last Modified: 2012-05-12

My Windows 2003 server is not booting up "Operating system not found"

Everytime I run the bootcfg /add or /rebuit, I received : Failed to add the selected boot entry. I try renaming the boot.ini to boot.old to create a new file, still the same.

I run a fixboot and fixmbr. Still the same

Any idea ?
