Recover Vista Boot Record

by on Aug.10, 2008, under Windows

Did GRUB get a little carried away and overwrite the Vista boot loader? Here’s the fix:

  1. Boot to Vista installation CD
  2. Enter system recovery > command prompt
  3. Run: Bootrec.exe /FixMbr
  4. Run: Bootrec.exe /FixBoot

GRUB is now gone, and the system should boot normally to the Vista login screen.
