I've got a bit of trouble with a laptop conisistantly not booting and getting an MBR error. Basically after the machine POSTS the screen goes blank and just says "MBR Error, please F11 to fix"......pressing F11 doesn't make a difference.
Ive booted off the xp cd and ran repair and tried to repair the mbr using box fixmbr, I've tried chkdsk, reformatting the hd, all to no avail. Basically when I run fixmbr it says that it cannot due to some problem with the disk, i consistantly get this error with everything I try.
at first I thought that the hd must be dead, but then I had second thoughts because I was able to format the disk from the command line from the xp repair thing. When I did this the disk formatted fine with no problems, but the problem is still here!!
I've now downloaded an army of various boot disks to see if I can salvage the hard drive!!
