Can you tell us which version you are running, the old ones used GRUB and the lastest ones GRUB2 so the instrucations vary slightly and we need to get the right one. m 0 l pleasenoname December 17, 2011 3:10:46 AM 9.04 is what is on there. I have bookmarks and some customization I'd rather not have to wipe. If I just get the drive with Ubuntu boot-able that will be good. m 0 l Related resources How to Clean install windows 8.1 pro 64bit on a 32bit windows 8.1 MBR Hdd - Forum MBR issue in windows 7 - Forum Turning hard disk to mbr without windows 8 - Forum Accidently deleted RAID1 and MBR, and want to restore data and array - Forum copy windows 7 install from mbr disk to gpt disc - Forum Can't find your answer ?
