I have a dual boot system - Win 98Se on partition C: and Win Xp pro on partition D:. This hdd has three more data partitions - E:, F: and G:. I store images of C: and D: on my second hdd. Now, I want to repartition / reformat my first hdd. If I restore the C: and D: images after the repartitioning / reformatting work, will my system boot normally? I have little idea about what happens to the MBR during repartitioning / reformatting, hence the question. Regards and thanks in advance.
