Someone I know is having a problem with booting their Windows 8/8.1 system. I'm assuming the boot /fixboot (and maybe boot /fixmbr) command will be able to solve the problem, but I don't have a Windows 8 disk myself. The only Windows installation disk I have is that of Vista. So I was just wondering whether I should be able to use it to repair this friends Windows 8 system? Thanks in advance! :)
EDIT: Both the Vista installation disk and the system I'm attempting to repair are 64-bit so there should be no compatibility issue. I should also add that I don't currently have the machine I'm talking about, it will be brought to me in a couple of days so I thought I'd ask here just to be sure.
