When I reboot something new is going on. At one point in the sequence The statement " Loading PBR for Descriptor 2...Done " appears. What is going on? Do I need to fix it? Any suggestions?

"Feature" of Dell machines. It is the "primary boot record 2" message from the factory.

The machine has three partitions from the factory:

1) Dell utility partition

2) OS partition (the one you're seeing here)

3) The hidden DSR / Dell system restore partition.


No worries. What you're seeing is normal. It only goes away if you kill that partition entirely, then recreate the OS partition.

You don't need to recreate it. But the message would go away if you were to. But wait until your Windows is totally up the shoot, then worry about it. :whistling:
