During setup or during WinNTSetup ?
In case WinNTSetup update the bootsector, it will be logged in the logfile.

I tried with Terabyle MBR.exe utlility, that add Press F?? Key boot option. Works with NT6.x installs.

During WinNTSetup. It happens at the very end after the updating boot code message. The yellow ball then turns green. I can't find a log file. Is it supposed to be on the drive where the system is installed?

If you have a binary compare app, I can send you the before and after versions of the MBR  I'm not sure if the mbr exe uses the same amount of code for the MBR like Bootit Bare Metal.

Log file is in the ?:\Windows\WinNTSetup.log.
How you disable the bootsector update, command line or ini file?

From the drop-down in the GUI (do not update boot code). Did not know there was an ini entry or cmdline parm for that. I must have missed the discussion about it. What is the ini entry supposed to be?

I see BootSect=2 after I updated to the newer .ini

Your log file is from version 3.8.7.3, the bug should be already be fixed in the current version.

I'm back in business now. I don't know what happened the last time when my MBR was overwritten. Maybe I unknowingly used the old version. This time the yellow ball stayed yellow. Sorry for the confusion

BTW, what is the ini setting for /nobootsect ?

Good, the ini option would be:

[WinNT6\READY]
BootSect=0

But better you set all GUI options and create a new ini file.

JFX Hello!

Tell me please, where does the program read the name of the version of Windows?

Hi Sergei,

The name comes from the XML of the WIM file.
<DISPLAYNAME> is used. If this does not exists than <Name> is used.

See: imagex -info wimfile.wim
