Decided to start a new thread on this question rather than add it to existing active threads because its focus is a bit different. I am running a Win XP Sp3 where the install files are on the PC in a 2nd partition. Thus there is no install CD that I can use to fix the MBR if nec. In this case how would I repair the MBR? No need for me to do this at this time but I may need to do so in the future. Better to find out now than when I HAVE to do it. Sorry if this is a foolish question but I am learning and this is new for me.
