    Hi guys,

    I am trying to create a minimalistic liveCD which is supposed to do the following:
    1. boot up
    2. go into windows recovery console
    3. run fixboot, fixmbr
    4. exit/shutdown

    this should be happening on headless windows machines, so no user interaction at all should be needed

    I have dug up a very complicated way of creating a recovery console CD, but it is not scriptable, and still requires the user to enter the admin password for the NTFS volume being fixed

    any ideas?

    PS: tried the same using linux ntfs-progs, but though it does take me further, ntfs-progs seem to be messing something up in NTFS, so that next time the machine boot up, though it does boot OK, it runs chkdisk upon windows startup
