Is there an "official" way to fix an MBR that has been overwritten such that there is still a valid partition table and valid MBR, but not the one you want?
Like usual upon inserting a Windows CD and booting off it my MBR was changed to that of the operating system for the CD; leaving me unable to get to the fancy FreeBSD boot loader I've come to love. I was able to rig it back by going into the custom installation option and just setting a drive as active and choosing to reload the MBR. However, it isn't readily apparent that this is what is happening as sysinstall will then complain about different things before rewriting the MBR/partition table. However, it does work... It would be nice if there was an option in the Custom menu to just analyze the partition table and allow the user to chooce to (re)install the boot manager; without being prompted to label. -- Ryan "leadZERO" Sommers Gamer's Impact President [EMAIL PROTECTED] ICQ: 1019590 AIM/MSN: leadZERO -= http://www.gamersimpact.com =- _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
