This one is a bit involved so bear with me please:-
I have 3 backups but all of them restore and will not boot as no os is found.8-((
All show the same problem, the system partition is marked as inactive, I cannot rebuild the bcd as the read attribute is set so the usual commands do not work other than exporting the bcd file.
How do you get around that issue.
I have tried the tiny tool partition manager but that does not set the see the system partition but only shows C as active and bootable.
The hard drive has been formatted and windows can be installed onto it.
Am I correct in saying that the system partition should have a bcd entry as it appears that is does have but I assume that is is corrupt.
The pc had been re-booted after the backups were taken but failed after a windows update.
It will boot into all safe modes quite OK.
I think that safe mode has it's own bcd entry?
