  1. first, get the commands right with bootrec, there is a space after bootrec so its
    “bootrec /fixmbr”
    “bootrec /fixboot”
    “bootrec /rebuildbcd”

    “bootrec /ScanOS” is useless, its does what rebuild does but without rebuilding the bcd, its a useless command, unless used for troubleshooting purposes, but for this, its useless.

  2. After verifying step 1, I tried step 2.
    “bootrec /fixboot” and press Enter.” gave me “access denied”.
    I went through to the last command anyway, “bootrec /rebuildbcd” and press Enter. After an interminable period, it claimed to find a windows installation on C;, but then claimed there was no C!
    Duh-h-h… I switched to Linux years ago. This was trying to unscramble a friend’s machine.
