Getting "error in loading OS" message at start up. Start up repair does not find any problems.
Tried bootrec.exe /fixmbr but the file would not recognize fixmbr.
A boot sector read has the following message included: " A disk read error occurred BOOTMGR is missing BOOTMGR is compressed Press Cltr+Alt+Del to restart"
I don't think I have a malware problem but how do I repair the MBR?
In addition a read of the 1st sector MBR contains the following: "Invalid partition table. Error loading operating system. Missing operating system."
The OS is not missing and right now the system will boot after multiple attempts. After the last successful boot, I've resorted to keeping the computer on until I can get this problem resolved.
