    I just went and bought a new 120 gb hdd and when i installed it I screwed up the way grub(an open source bootloader) was working. so what i want to do is get into the windows recovery console to try a mbrfix.

    the only problem is that i lent out my win xp cd yesterday and i really dont fancy the drive to go pick it up again. Will i have to download the whole os again to get it working or can i just download the recovery console from somewhere.

    or if you got any ideas about grub that might be an easier way to fix it.

    Id advise you next time you have a windows disk to install the recovery console.


    Anyway Youll need to do a fixmbr or bootcfg /default from the recovery console. Or if you can boot into dos and do a fixmbr or something. You may be able to get a boot floppy for the recovery console but I dont know.

    Next time you chose a dual boot dont install a boot loader boot up linux from a floppy.
