I've messed up my PC and I want to reset the boot records of the Windows Boot Loader. I'm in Command Prompt but I don't know what to command and so on. Please help me out!

command prompt of what? do you mean the recovery console? What exactly did you do? What OSes do you have loaded? – Journeyman Geek Oct 28 '12 at 13:48
