Hey everyone, I work in IT and I asked all the techs here just to clear confusion, and the guy above me is correct.

Note that CompTia A+ has labs or performance based questions that require simulating an actual scenario and troubleshooting it. It is critical to actually practice the different techniques and things that are learned for the certification so that you can perform the required work accurately in a timely manner.

nightmarek1ng

could you send me a link to where I can practice all of the 902 labs?

rlbowe34

so i just had this ? this morning on the test,. and all it had to click was either boot to win 7 or Boot to hard disc, which one is right

cabeasley

boot to Win7 DVD (boot to hard disc is not possible since "BOOTMGR is missing")

BOOTREC /RebuildBcd

Andy40

RebuildBCD is correct. Fixboot overwrites files.

zach0101l

the FIXBOOT command fixes any problems with the boot.ini file of your OS. Situations where the boot.ini file corrupted or missing can be fixed using this command. It does not cause any loss of data.

Bootrec /FixMbr // If you have Damaged MBR Bootrec /Fixboot // If you’r MBR is having problem or Missing. Bootrec /Rebuild //If you’re MBR is Compressed or unable to repair

samsimon

Bootrec /Rebuildbcd

Bruxinth

So bootrec /fixboot would do it in this case, because the question indicates that the BootMGR is missing?

sherlene

I have read all the responses and I am still confused. Does the graphic on the screen have anything to do with the answer? Do I need boot to the DVD or the Hard drive? I am thinking use F8 go to Adv Settings>cmd prompt> Bootrec /FixMbr. HELP

aduarte

the way i did was as follow 1. click on boot to windows 7DVD> on the next window click on repair your computer> on the next window click on command prompt> once you on the command prompt that looks like x:\Sources> type bootrec /fixboot and hit enter and you done

wnadim

so would it be /fixmbr since it doesn't rewrite?

adamcampetti

It would be nice is the actual moderator would post the exact answer, and pin it. I love reading all the responses, but at this point I only need to read a correct answer.

bootrec /fixmbr

stevenmosley

BOOTREC /fixboot works when you have problems with the boot sector, it starts the OS bootloader, its also called the volume boot record

garnettkevin2123

"fixmbr" only has to do with the Master Boot Record. But, "bootmgr" is found in the volume boot record. Hence, fixmbr will not fix the issue. Now, "FixBoot" will fix boot sector errors.

wnadim

I went to the MS website and this is what it said. I feel it would be bootrec /fixmbr because it doesn't rewrite but then again it could be /rebuildbcd because it said to use this if it's missing but would it still rewrite? Use Bootrec.exe in the Windows RE to troubleshoot startup issues  Email  Print Summary When you use the Recovery Environment (Windows RE) to troubleshoot startup issues, first try the Startup Repair option in the System Recovery Options dialog box. If this does not resolve the issue, or if you have to manually troubleshoot additional issues, use the Bootrec.exe tool. This article talks about how to use the Bootrec.exe tool in the Windows RE to troubleshoot and repair the following items in Windows Vista or Windows 7: A master boot record (MBR) A boot sector A Boot Configuration Data (BCD) store You can also use the Bootrec.exe tool to troubleshoot a Windows Boot Configuration Data file is missing required information error. How to run the Bootrec.exe tool To run the Bootrec.exe tool, first start the Windows RE: Put the Windows Vista or Windows 7 media in the DVD drive, and then start the computer. Press a key when you are prompted. Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard, or an input method, and then click Next. Click Repair your computer. Select the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt. Type Bootrec.exe, and then press Enter. Information icon Note To start the computer from the Windows Vista or Windows 7 DVD, the computer must be configured to start from the DVD drive. For information about how to do this, see the documentation that was included with the computer, or contact the computer manufacturer. The Bootrec.exe tool supports the following options. Use the option that's appropriate for your situation. /FixMbr This option writes a Windows 7 or Windows Vista-compatible MBR to the system partition. It does not overwrite the existing partition table. Use this option when you must resolve MBR corruption issues, or when you have to remove nonstandard code from the MBR. /FixBoot This option writes a new boot sector to the system partition by using a boot sector that's compatible with Windows Vista or Windows 7. Use this option if one of the following conditions is true: The boot sector was replaced with a nonstandard Windows Vista or Windows 7 boot sector. The boot sector is damaged. An earlier Windows operating system was installed after Windows Vista or Windows 7 was installed. In this situation, the computer starts by using Windows NT Loader (NTLDR) instead of Windows Boot Manager (Bootmgr.exe). /ScanOs This option scans all disks for installations that are compatible with Windows Vista or Windows 7. It also displays the entries that are currently not in the BCD store. Use this option when there are Windows Vista or Windows 7 installations that the Boot Manager menu does not list

An answer is provided from Microsoft on the issue. Using bootrec /rebuildbcd you can fix this issue. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2622803/bootmgr-is-missing-press-ctrl-alt-del-to-restart-error-when-you-start

matthew.credeur

The answer is to go into the DVD and access the system recovery options. Once there go to the command prompt and type bootrec /fixboot. Press done after that.
