Hello. My friend recently encountered the error "Disk read error occurred."
It seems to be because her MBR is damaged, according to other forums I've read, and a partition recovery program that listed her MBR partition as damaged.
When I plug in her drive, the partition that holds her Windows 7-64 OS is absent(the computer hers interacts with is also Windows 7-64)
Her recovery partition on that drive seems fine, however. Is there any way I can copy that partition from her drive over to a blank drive that I have, and use that to repair her other drive? Or is there a way to recover her damaged drive? I'm not too good with this kind of thing.
If anyone knows the best solution for fixing this without having to wipe the inaccessible main partition, that would help a ton.
Visit the following site; MBR - Restore Windows 7 Master Boot Record
Her Asus lacks a disk drive, which is one of my problems. She also never made a backup disk of her computer.
However, when I plug in her computer to mine, I see the recovery partition. It simply does not show in the advanced menu. Can I copy the recovery partition from her drive to mine in such a way that I can fix her disk using it?
Can I also access the command promp from her ASUS without the need of a recovery disk?
Thanks a ton for the help.
