I deleted the MBR/partition on my PC's HD, I had a laptop HD connected via USB(I was testing it) and even though the laptop HD came up as a 'disk' it was not fully recognized, I was playing about with a HD tool, whisky something and deleted my own HD's MBR instead of the laptop one.
On the next boot of the PC I get,
Status: 0xc000000e. Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible
After connecting the PC's HD via USB to another laptop(Win XP) I can see all the files on the drive, I think I used the whisky app again and it showed the drive just as a 'disk' with no partitions(and I assume MBR).
So it seems bootrec and BCDEdit are the win 7 tools to use from within win 7 although I am working from win xp which uses fixboot, fixmbr, boocfg etc.
So how(if I can) fix the mbr and partitions of the win 7 HD from a win xp drive via usb?
