I got my PC with 7 preinstalled so I don't have installation disks. I had installed Ubuntu but decided to uninstall so I formatted the partition and now learned that the mbr must be fixed after doing that. I can't boot so Idk what to do. I have recovery disks but Idk if those will work and I'm having trouble finding them. is there a bootable CD that I could make from another PC to fix the mbr? thank you!
thanks, nothing on the PC is too important that I couldn't reinstall but I would hate to have to do that. is there a way I could make a bootable CD to fix the mbr? like hirems boot CD but preferably smaller? thanks again!
Other thing to consider is to install Win-XP (if you have an installation disk copy of it) on the second partition where linux was, and download and use EasyBCD to modify the MBR, as previously recommended. An alternative would be to use the command line cmd "e:\boot\bootsect.exe /nt60 all" which would put the Win-7 bootloader choice back in the MBR.
thank you john for the advice. I'm working on getting the installation disks. area 51 that would work if I could get into the os. also with the mbr corrupted is it impossible to boot from a bootable CD? thanks again.
