I have had a 40G HDD sitting around for ages.  Today I needed the recovery partition, but on a different HDD albeit for the original laptop.  I did some searching online and found a program to change the boot log to give me the F11 option to allow me to use the discs to load the recovery partition.  Well, I accidentally ran that program with the original HDD still installed.  This deleted the HDD boot log and removed the F11 option for the recovery partition.  Please help me to get it installed back onto the original HDD.


IBM T43, 2.0G Pentium processor, 2G RAM, Windows XP SP3


Please let me know what system data you need.

Thank you.

Fixed.  Loaded my XP CD and ran mbrfix.exe. voila!


Fixing one's own screw-ups is one of the best ways to learn.
