Windows 7: Ghost Image recovery problem

22 Jul 2011   #1

Ghost Image recovery problem

My Sonyvaio with Windows 7 starter crashed and I used Ghost Image for backup copy which I made earlier, but did it in another computer by removing the Hard Drive.

Now Windows won't boot saying " Operating system not found ". I know it's probably
MBR issue and I need advice how to fix MBR in Windows 7 and with which tool.

I don't have CD/DVD drive in my Vaio so it has to be from USB. Can MBRWizard 3.0 help ?
