  5. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, choose the drive of your Windows installation and click Next.

  6. At the System Recovery Options Dialog Box, click on Repair your computer.

  7. Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.

  8. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Startup Repair.

  9. Type BOOTREC /REBUILDBCD and then press ENTER.

Method 3: Use the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) to run System Restore

  1. Insert the Windows installation disc into the disc drive, and then start the computer.

  2. Press any key when the message indicating “Press any key to boot from CD or DVD…” appears.

  3. Select a language, a time and currency, and a keyboard or input method, and then click Next.

Clear All Windows 2008 R2 event logs!

If you want to clear the event logs in a Windows Server system, you can fire up Event Viewer, browse to the desired log and from the Actions menu select Clear Log….
But if you want to clear all the System and Application logs at once, you’d better use the ‘wevtutil’ command-line utility Microsoft offers. A Windows PowerShell command like this will do the job.

Run PowerShell as Administrator and enter the below cmd.

wevtutil el | foreach { wevtutil cl $_ }
