FDisk /mbr woes?? - 7/6/2006 8:52:34 AM

Hi there,
After recently trying Vista Beta 2 which I installed on a partition (G:\), I decided to remove it which I did by formatting G: drive by means of Partition Magic.
There was a folder called 'Boot' and a couple of the boot manager files to delete from the root of C: drive also.
 
Anyway, I now would like to re-install MDK Linux on G: drive/partition but I need to fix the Master Boot Record as although I'm not having anything annoying or even noticeable happen ie; the boot loader etc have gone & it boots straight into XP as it should atm.
 
I started the PC by means of boot floppy in order to do 'fdisk /mbr' to C: but C isn't being recognised? anyone any ideas?.
 
It's getting near that time where a format & fresh install won't do any harm but I'd rather this isn't the catalyst for it! lol
 
Regards, Esskie.

Sorted! .
 
I'd been using a Win98 boot-disc & my C: drive is a NTFS partition so I guess that wasn't 'seeing' the drive?.
 
I booted into XP using the XP CD, hit 'R' for Recovery Option and then done 'fixboot' from the command-line.
