    Hello, just ran into a slight problem: the "Unmountable Boot Volume" error. I did a bit of reasearch on it and found that it can be solved by a live cd (ubuntu). so I follow the steps on this website: http://www.arsgeek.com/2008/01/15/how-to-fix-your-windows-mbr-with-an-ubuntu-livecd/

    I could not get the ms-sys package so I used the wget command. I got to the 3 step on the ms-sys website. Says error 1.

    Very confusing, is there another way around it? I don't have the install cd, as I use a Acer Laptop. If possible, I would like to keep my data.

    Any suggestions?
