About the boot disk
Posted on 2000-03-01
Could anybody help me with this pls..
In my last question, I asked how to make a boot disk.. and got suggestions.. and what exactly boot disk is for..
I don't think I have fully understood what we need boot disk for.. I know if My system is not booting up due to any reason.. I can use boot disk..
But okay.. Lets say..
I have WIN98 system..
Whenever I boot the system, it starts WIN98 Operating system reading from MBR..
say I installed another OS say LINUX and somehow changed my MBR so that whenever I reboot my system, I end up starting my LINUX instead of WINDOWS..
Now I know if I insert this BOOTDISK (WINDOWS boot disk), I will end up in command prompt a:\..
Now can I go to windows from this DOS PROMPT.. without setting the whole windows again..
In a simple way.. Can I just fix my MBR without installing my Windows again.. so that whenever I start my system, I end up starting WINDOWS instead of LINUX..
any help would be really appreciated..
