i had two hdd's in my computer and decided to remove one as i did not really need it and figured it save some power,
after removing secondary hard drive which was just being used as storage i received the " MBR Error 1" after about 2 hours researching
i found i could repair it from windows cd, only problem is i only have a live usb version of it and when i try to launch system recovery the
operating system is not listed and i have to load drivers for the hard disk.
i really do not want to wipe and reinstall windows as its only been 2 weeks since i built the system and also i have a game which is 25gb digital download installed on it but it deletes the installation files after installing it and reinstalling would mean re-installing.
i guess i have 2 questions:
1. is there anyway to copy a liveusb onto a disk ? for example, make an iso of a usb drive and burn it to dvd?
2. what drivers would i have to load on the windows startup recovery to get it to see the operating system
below are my system specifications if it helps:
MOBO: Asus sabertooth z77
RAM: gskill ripjaws 8gb (2 x 4gb)
CPU: intel i5-2500k
GRAPHICS: zotac geforce gtc 580 3gb
HDD: WD caviar blue 500gb
OS: windows 7 ultimate SP1 64 bit
any help would greatly be appreciated as this has me absolutely frustrated.
