HOWTO: SLI on a non-SLI Motherboard (GTX5xx compatible 1.0 final released!) - Page 125

post #1241 of 1985
This patch is not working for me. I am receiving the message "unable to get boot information" when I run the patch. I have done a lot of searching and tried many things to get the message to go away.

First I checked disk management to make sure that my boot drive was assigned a drive letter. Next I ran the windows repair environment and scanned/fixed any startup errors. And finally I used the cmd prompt from the windows repair environment to run bootrec.exe. I tried the /fixmbr, /fixboot and /rebuildbcd commands. The rebuild bcd command was the only that did not complete properly. Any suggestions on how I can get this to work? I am so anxious to get SLI running!

right click the patch and run it as a administrator

then it should work...

if it doesn't...

go back to the older patch and uninstall it.

then reboot and run the new patch

ok.. someone else has this issue before...

i will see if i can find the post about it...

are you running a dual boot at all?

is your HDD partitioned?

you are running the patch as a administrator?
