Hi guys,

Is there a way to repair an mbr or fix other boot issues on an externally mounted hard drive? I have a drive that will not boot into normal/safe/repair mode and I externally mounted it to my own computer to scan for viruses. Any suggestions on how to fix this from here, and if not, from within a boot cd?

It's the same as doing a Repair Install from the Recovery DVDs.
Many OEM recovery DVDs can't perform a repair install .. (Wipe and rebuild only)
It has to be made from the Same 64 <> 32 bit version.
I have one made from my W7 computer .. And have used it on others that had problems booting.

I don't understand why one can't download one of these from M$ ????
