    Hi, Folks: After reformatting one of notebooks w/ manufacturer's recovery CD, on preboot screen(black color), MBR error_3 message appears each time. The O/S works just fine, but I can not resize or create new partition w/ Partition Magic. The said process halts due to too many erros(983 in total).The reason for reformatting? there was an unknown attack resulting in memory errors w/ most system files. I tried to rescue system w/ FD-ISR and TI, unfortunately, both failed. This time around, I did not install FD-ISR and TI. I use window XP SP2, home, P4,512RAM, 40GB. Any remedies other than reinstall w/ Window XP CD(which I did not have)? Thanks.
