MBR Trashed. Repair options?
Posted on 2004-09-20
I installed SUSE 9.1 Personal to try it out. After playing around with it for awhile I decided to put Windows XP back on, mainly to play games and do some work from home. However, I can't boot and I'm told the MBR is damaged. Okay, no big deal. I use Windows fixmbr command and reboot. Same problem. It's at this point I remember that and earlier version of SUSE I installed a couple of years ago also trashed my MBR. I normally would use the Western Digital hard drive formatting floppy, but I don't have a floppy drive. Is there a tool I can burn to a CD and then boot from my CD drive to repair/reformat the HD? The drive is a 60GB Western Digital.
