– Repair the boot when an OS does not boot any more (eg. after installing Windows)
– Repair the boot when access to GRUB and any OS is lost (eg. “GRUB rescue” error)
– Allow to reinstall GRUB bootloader easily
– Allow to generate a generic MBR compatible with Windows XP/Vista/Seven/Windows8
– Allow to restore the original bootsector (MBR) if it has been saved by Clean-Ubiquity

Boot-Repair can repair access to : Windows XP, Vista, Seven, Windows8, Debian, Ubuntu, Mint, Fedora, OpenSuse, and other systems compatible with GRUB and Syslinux. Boot-Repair can be installed & used from any type of session (normal session, or live-CD, or live-USB) of Debian, Ubuntu, Mint and derivatives.
