[ltp] Restore WinXP MBR?
Fri, 21 Nov 2003 01:44:00 -0800
So, while trying to get my partitions set up properly I installed grub
into the mbr for the whole disk of my T40. Although this is not a
problem for linux, I can't boot Windows anymore (this is required
sometimes for me).
I went ahead and got the recovery CDs from IBM (for which I was charged
$40 since I've had the machine over 30 days...I hate computer
companies). They restored everything but the MBR.
I don't have a floppy drive; any suggestions? Would I be able to use any
usb floppy drive to boot my ThinkPad (to use a windows boot floppy to
fix the mbr)?
