Hi boopme, thanks for your continuing advice.
Following your suggestion, I attempted to run the Windows Recovery Console, with the intent of then using of "fixmbr". Unfortunately, I am unable to run the Recovery Console successfully.
I first created a bootable CD with the Recovery Console ISO file. When I boot from it, and then press "R" to enter the Recovery Console, I see the Recovery Console files loading, but then I get this error message:
Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed on your computer.
Make sure any hard disk drives are powered on and properly connected to your computer, and that any disk-related hardware configuration is correct.
Setup cannot continue.
I then tried installing the Recovery Console onto my hard drive directly, and booting into it that way. That failed with a blue screen containing the following error message:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated.
* STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF78D2524, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
So, I am unable to successfully run the Windows Recovery Console. It appears that Recovery Console is not using the correct hard disk controller. Any other ideas?
EDIT: It turns out that my main drive is on a RAID controller, which is not recognized by default by the Recovery Console. I will try to find some appropriate drivers, and then attempt the Recovery Console process again...
