This seems kind of really sketchy... but anyway, if I remember correctly, on Window's there's a boot.ini in a system folder that if deleted can prevent booting. If not, then just go with Wall's idea of overwriting part of the HDD, and or D-BAN-ing the entire thing.

What's your end goal? There might be a better way to do what you are trying to do.

A bit of research told me this: Windows 7 doesn't have a boot.ini. Windows XP does, and would truely malfunction from it, but it is repairable as long as you had the Windows XP CD and you have this page of the interwebz. Windows 7 has the boot load manager, though I'm guessing you can do something similar with it.

Isn't killing the MBR on the hard-disk good enough to corrupt Windows or any OS for that matter? Using a magnet on a hard-disk (not an SSD of course) will also render Windows corrupted, but also the drive possibly destroyed if you do a good enough job. DBAN as suggested will also kill everything on the drive and wrongly installing LILO or another boot manager will also do a lot of damage if it gets out of hand. The question is: why would you want to?

If I were you, I wouldn't go around messing with the MBR... I believe the MBR will occasionally (i.e. on certain machines) point to BIOS's entry point in memory.

I advise against it. I'm sure if you mess around with the registry and edit and delete things at will you will reach your goal.

1. google how to disable as much functionality from the registry as possible
2. enter registry, disable everything from the start menu button, to the task manager, to the win-r command, to disabling regedit and cmd prompt, to even disabling right clicking on the computer
3. ????
4. laugh hysterically as your victim starts his computer and is unable to do anything besides move around the mouse and cry softly to himself

3. Profit!

Still, good call :)
