MBR (Master Boot Record) for x41 Wanted!!!

Hi,

I have instaleed Linux on my x41 and GRUB has changed MBR so now I can't access recovery partition. Can anyone please read the original MBR and send it to me.

To do it download MBRWiz and run it  in DOS window (command prompt)

>MBRWiz /Save=mbrx41

 

Please send me resulting mbrx41 file.

I'm sure someone will need it also in future.

 

Thanks a lot

You should be able to access the recovery partition through GRUB. It may take a little fidling with the menu.list.

You could also use therepair diskette if you have a usb floppy drive.

Otherwise you are going to have to provide instructions for someone to extract the MBR. I don't think anyone around here does that on a regular basis.
