Thank you so much

Dear iseeuu,

Thank you so much for posting this article. I purchased a brand new laptop and the second day ( due to my play arounds with MBR, it got corrupted ).... I was terribly upset as I have to re install windows....
Tried a lot with ubuntu live cds, re-installing grub, windows 7 automatic startup recovery...but nothing helped....

But the procedure given by you really rocks!!!!

May God bless you :-)

This thread is magical. I was experimenting with Ubuntu awhile back and I found that I didn't want to run it on my desktop so I deleted the partition and shut down, Fast forward to 2 months later I went to power on said desktop on a lack of sleep and found that the computer was booting to "grub recuse" command. I didn't know that Ubuntu overridden the MBR with Grub. Now I do. Found this site because I could not remember now to fix the MBR to save my life. That and I was overlooking the simplest answer to my problem.

Long story short, you saved my lack of sleep ass and I thank you for it.

Beautiful

Add me to your list of converts. Installed Ubuntu x64 & then tried some ill-informed shortcuts to uninstall it. You can guess the rest.

This thread saved my butt, my system, & perhaps my marriage. Thank you.

~ My desktop crashes overnight ... sometimes. It attempts to reboot, but halts at 'Verifying DMI pool data'. (No idea why it crashes - it isn't consistent - it doesn't crash during daily use, and most likely a power flicker issue.) ~ I reboot using MiniTool Partition Wizard boot disc, rebuild...
