This morning, my Windows Server 2003 computer failed to boot, when I planned to use it to do business work. Knowing little about computer knowledge, I even can not figure out the exact reason. However, I have little time left for document editing, so I wonder is there any efficient Windows Server 2003 fix boot manager?
There are multiple factors which are most likely to cause computer fails to boot, and some of them are listed out here:
1. BOOT.INI is lost or in wrong form
The file BOOT.INI storing information regarding the physical locations of various Windows NT-based illustrations is situated in the root of “system” partition, which contains other folders like NTLDR, NTDETECT, and a BOOT folder. NTLDR accesses this file to get a list of the installed operating systems and display them in the on-screen boot menu for the end user to pick and OS to load into. Once the file goes wrong, system may fail to boot normally.
2. System files are corrupted or missing
Supposing that some essential system files needed to boot machine are deleted, damaged or lost due to certain reason, or the boot sector of the disc is damaged, the operating system may fail to start. And attack of malicious software is one of culprits. Here, malicious software refers to viruses, Trojans, worms, rootkits or something alike users want to keep out of computer. Once the computer is infected with the viruses, vital system files in the machine are most likely to be changed or corrupted, and then users may suffer from system boot failure.
3. Master Boot Record goes wrong
MBR short for Master Boot Record contains Boot Loader, Disk Partition Table and Disk Signature (55AA). Virus attack and improper operations may damage bootstrap code or partition table of MBR, and then operating system could fail to start.
The listed factors above are logical errors leading system boot failure. Well then, how to fix it? Here, the example of fixing boot failure caused by damage of MBR is explained to users.
