Winload.exe missing again but no commands help! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have a Mac Mini 2008 with these specs

    Processor - 1.83 GHZ Core Duo

    RAM - 2GB

    HDD - 80GB

    Operating System - Mac OS X 10.6.8, Windows Vista

    My problem : I was installing Windows Vista and I got to the point where it needs to reboot to complete the setup, but sadly after it rebooted it claimed that Windows\System32\Winload.exe is missing. I used the recovery tools to repair it, this includes all the repair commands but this doesn't help in anyway. I go back into Mac OS X 10.6 and located the Windows hard drive and found the Winload.exe in the System32 folder. I heard that this file should also be in this location Windows\System32\Boot but I could never find the folder.

    Please help!

    -Matthew
