    Bootsect.exe updates the master boot code for hard disk partitions to switch between BOOTMGR and NTLDR. You can use this tool to restore the boot sector on your computer. This tool replaces FixFAT and FixNTFS.</DIV><H2>Bootsect Commands</H2><DIV class=intro>

    Bootsect uses the following conventions:

    bootsect.exe {/help | /nt52 | /nt60} {SYS | ALL | &lt;DriveLetter:&gt;} [/force]

    For example, to apply the master boot code that is compatible with NTLDR (XP/2000/98)to the volume labeled E, use the following command:

    bootsect.exe /nt52 E:

    To fix or replace a messed up Vista boot loader use this:

    bootsect.exe/nt60 E:

    Another possible way to fix your Vista boot loader: Updates the bootloader on the current window system.

    bootsect.exe SYS
