    Hi,

    Is there a way to fix/repair the MBR? I have a french edition of familly windows Xp with Sp2.

    So far, I have try : Fdisk /MBR (the system can't find fdisk) and FixMBR (the system can't find fixmbr). Is there any solution?

    Thank you,
    Atomas31

    Beings it's XP you'll be dealing with the Recovery Console.

    Fixmbr

    I did this. Got message that mbr had been reformatted;however, when I booted again, still saw the message: MBR Error3.

    What now?

    If there is a problem with the Boot-sector on the C:-drive, you can use "fixboot" to write
    a new boot-sector.

    Follow Bubba's instructions to get into the Recovery Console and run the fixboot command with the appropriate drive designated. You will need to run this from the root directory--(ie: C: ) If you're unsure of the syntax, type "fixboot /?". Omit quotes.

    Good luck!
