    Question startup repair from WDS / MDT

    Hello all,
    I have WDS / MDT 2010 running on 2008 r2.
    I have a windows 7 machine getting a boot error
    0xc000014c

    system registry file missing or corrupt
    I have seen this a number of times and my solution is always to image it.
    I read today that a startup repair may fix it.
    My question is can I run startup repair from WDS / MDT or PXE boot in general?

    Thank you,

    I have added syslinux boot to my WDS so I can boot iso images like msdart etc

    Yes I have PXElinux on the WDS server so when a machine netboots I can choose between Thinstation WDS and Gparted.
    I will look into geting it to boot awindows 7 install directly but didn't know if there were any task sequences or commands I could run from the WDS PE environment.

    If I cancel the image selection I get a command prompt. I've found tools to fix the MBR and cnkdisk. Is there a way to launch this startup repair from there?

    Thanks,
