Fix the MBR (Master Boot Record)

Is your computer showing a 'no system disc' error and 'press any key to continue'?

Had to boot from an USB drive, to run memtest, a memory diagnostic software, and it somehow overwrote the MBR (Master Boot Record). So every time I had to 'press a key' to make the computer boot normally.

How I solved this issue?

The solution is quite simple.

  1. Grab the Windows 8/8.1 installation CD and put it into the DVD drive.
  2. Reboot your computer from the DVD.
  3. Wait for the Windows installer to load.
  4. First you have to select the language to install, time and currency format and keyboard layout.
  5. Click on 'Repair your computer'.
  6. Click on 'Advanced ...'
  7. Click on 'Command prompt'.
  8. In Command prompt enter the following command:
    bootrec /fixmbr (if your MBR is damaged)
    bootrec /fixboot (if your MBR is having problems or is missing)
    bootrec /rebuild (if your MBR is compressed or you are unable to repair it)
  9. When you're done type 'exit'.
  10. Click on 'Shut down your computer' or something like that.
  11. The MBR should be fixed.
