I'm totally confused as to how to use TestDisk to fix my MBR on my Vista Home 64 bit computer. Does anyone know if I can use it on this computer if the OS I use to boot it is a linux based live CD which has TestDisk on it?

From other postings I have found, TestDisk will fix the MBR, but I can't figure out how to go about it.


Thanks for any suggestions

If you can use your Recovery CD to get to the Recovery Console, or you can get there by another means that would be your best option. You can then use FIXMBR

Testdisk:
Start Testdisk
Create a new logfile
Select your Disk -> Proceed
Intel <enter>
MBR Code

Note this will overwrite any MBR based Boot Manager (so I'm not going any further).
