What Is the Fixmbr Command?:
Fixmbr Command Syntax:
device_name = This is where you designate the exact drive location that a master boot record will be written to. If no device is specified, the master boot record will be written to the primary boot drive.
Fixmbr Command Examples:
In the above example, the master boot record is written to the drive located at \Device\HardDisk0.
In this example, the master boot record is written to the device that your primary system is loaded onto. If you have a single installation of Windows installed, which is normally the case, running the fixmbr command in this way is usually the right way to go.
Fixmbr Command Availability:
The fixmbr command is only available from within the Recovery Console in Windows 2000 and Windows XP.
