have an Inspiron 6400 laptop that was having boot up issues (corrupted OS files) running XP Home.
i inadvertantly ran CHKDSK /FIXMBR and now I can no longer access the data on that partition.
a past post suggested: http://www.cgsecurity.org
(running TestDisk to restore the backup MBR)....only problem there is i need a bootable CD to run it off of (assuming that will work).
bottom line, need to recover the data from that partition that had CHKDSK /FIXMBR run on it.
