Thanks for the Start-up info, that would’ve been the last place I would look. Appreciate that. However, I would also appreciate if in the future you do not insult my intelligence making references to "Google it". Been there , done that! FYI - my four year grandson knows how to Google. I guess I need to start posting again that Google references are not necessary. I think you also misread my comment about Briefcase. Win 7 Help specifically describe how to activate Briefcase after creating New Folder. There is no such option to do that on my copy of Win 7.

I did not insult your intelligence, nor did I say "Google it". You ask a vague question but give no indication that you have used Google to find any references, so I did it for you. Did you actually follow the link and read any of the entries?
One of these days I'm going to think of a really clever signature.
I have a PC with Windows 7 OS which is having problem booting up. It runs “DOS” check disk and does not complete it and does not boot. By accident I changed the vendor's boot to USB and it booted the OS. I have been unsuccessful changing the setup to boot to USB. The boot precess runs differently each time I try that and never completes. So it looks like MBR on the HD is kaput. Since I am new to Windows 7 I hope I can get to DOS fdisk and restore the MBR.
Or is there any other newfangled way to to this in Windows 7?
At one point the OS start running “automatic updates” , but started with #40 out of 72. My guess is that the original update got interrupted and the result is no boot record on HD. BTW , for 64 bit OS it is painfully slow, but I do not look given horse into mouth. Thanks for your help. Vaclav
