Boot Sectors- How Do You Restore

Posted: 01-25-2009, 10:46 PM
I have made several attempts to run Error Check and the message I get is
that "The first NTFS boot sector is unreadable. Reading the second NTFS boot
sector insead. All NTFS boot sectors are unreadab le. cannot continue."
I is possible to restore or rebuild the boot sectors withou reloading my
computer?. If it is, how do I do it?

Partition Table Doctor is the only real software for Harddisk partitions
recovery when you experience a drive error (other than hardware
failure). This versatile tool automatically checks and repairs the
Master Boot Record, partition table, and the boot sector of the
partition with an error, to recover the
FAT16/FAT32/NTFS/NTFS5/EXT2/EXT3/SWAP partition on IDE/ATA/SATA/SCSI
Harddisk drives. It can create an emergency floppy disk or a bootable CD
to recover the bad partition even if your operating system fails to
boot.
