I need to recover a Vista laptop.
Drive D was broken during a partition operation (Paragon), think I need to recover the partition.
On drive C I think I need to repair the MBR and/or BOOT.INI and perhaps more.
(I tried to install an OS on an external drive, but XP installer says it cant because C is corrupt, Is there some way I can put another partition instead of C in this case?)
I think USB would be better than CD, and it must be something I can just download and use.
I have used Knoppix in the past (But it seems I actually have to do things on an NTFS drive this time).
