Ok, I'm really sorry for the HUGE bump, but I would like to try this GUI, but I don't use winbuilder, and the "wbZip" extraction tool I get the failed message no matter what I try.

So could someone please upload just the exe file?

Thanks :cheers:

New version bootsect.exe has added option / mbr.
Can someone actualize this bootsectGUI to had option / mbr

bootsect {/help|/nt60|/nt52} {SYS|ALL|<DriveLetter>&#58;} &#91;/force&#93; &#91;/mbr&#93;



Boot sector restoration tool



Bootsect.exe updates the master boot code for hard disk partitions in order to

switch between BOOTMGR and NTLDR.  You can use this tool to restore the boot

sector on your computer.



/help   Displays these usage instructions.



/nt52   Applies the master boot code that is compatible with NTLDR to SYS,

		ALL, or <DriveLetter>.  The operating system installed on SYS, ALL, or

		<DriveLetter> must be older than Windows Vista.



/nt60   Applies the master boot code that is compatible with BOOTMGR to SYS,

		ALL, or <DriveLetter>.  The operating system installed on SYS, ALL, or

		<DriveLetter> must be Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 or later.



SYS	 Updates the master boot code on the system partition used to boot

		Windows.



ALL	 Updates the master boot code on all partitions.  ALL does not

		necessarily update the boot code for each volume.  Instead, this

		option updates the boot code on volumes that could be used as Windows

		boot volumes, which excludes any dynamic volumes that are not

		connected with an underlying disk partition.  This restriction is

		present because boot code must be located at the beginning of a disk

		partition.



<DriveLetter> Updates the master boot code on the volume associated with this

		drive letter.  Boot code will not be updated if either 1&#41;

		<DriveLetter> is not associated with a volume or 2&#41; <DriveLetter> is

		associated with a volume not connected to an underlying disk

		partition.



/force  Forcibly dismounts the volume&#40;s&#41; during the boot code update.  You

		should use this option with caution.



		If Bootsect.exe cannot gain exclusive volume access then the file

		system may overwrite the boot code before the next reboot.

		Bootsect.exe always attempts to lock and dismount the volume before

		each update.  When /force is specified, a forced dismount is attempted

		if the initial lock attempt fails.  A lock can fail, for example, if

		files on the target volume are currently opened by other programs.



		When successful, a forced dismount allows exclusive volume access and

		a reliable boot code update even though the initial lock failed.  At

		the same time, a forced dismount invalidates all open handles to files

		on the target volume.  This could result in unexpected behavior from

		the programs that opened these files.  Therefore, you should use this

		option with caution.



/mbr	Updates the Master Boot Record without changing the partition table on

		sector 0 of the disk that contains the partition specified by SYS, ALL,

		or drive letter.  When used with /nt52 option, the master boot record

		is compatible with operating systems older than Windows Vista.  When

		used with the /nt60 option, the master boot record is compatible with

		Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 or later.



Example&#58;



To apply the master boot code that is compatible with NTLDR to the volume

labeled E&#58;, use the following command&#58;



bootsect /nt52 E&#58;



bootsect /nt60 C&#58; /mbr
