"Insert Bootable Media..." error msg on startup
Posted on 1999-01-19
All of a sudden, my PC (HP-Pavilion) won't boot from the C: drive.
I get the message "Insert Bootable Media..."
I've booted using a floppy and executed FDISK to look at the partition info for the C: drive. (FAT32)
FDISK says there is no Partition
The disk was formatted to have a Primary and an Extended partition, with two logical drives in the extended partition.
There are files on this disk that I don't want to loose.
I have a written record of the original partiton info (i.e. Partiton types, MBytes, percentages, etc).
Any suggestions as to how to fix this, short of reformatting the drive?
Anyone know of any tools/utilites that would rebuild the partition table and Master Boot Record?
