Lori, Could be you are right - my memory isn't what it used to be , besides the only time you have to use a command like that is in an "emergency" and I always type "help" or "fdisk /?" to make sure I am typing in the correct syntax etc. Why commit the small amount of memory still left to my brains to memorizing stuff like that when typing in a help or two will solve the problem? [Much more important, IMHO, to remember what to buy in the supermarket !!!! LOL]. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TTFN Vic "To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ -----Original Message----- From: pcductape-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:pcductape-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Lori Gebhart Sent: Wednesday, 16 April, 2003 15:27 To: pcductape@xxxxxxxxxxxxx I'm not sure but isn't it: fdisk /mbr Lori -----Original Message----- From: pcductape-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:pcductape-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx]On Behalf Of Victor Firestone Sent: Wednesday, April 16, 2003 1:11 AM To: pcductape@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [pcductape] Re: Dell Laptop Try with a cd boot disk the following from a command line without the quotes - "fixmbr" I think that is the right command To unsubscribe from this list send an email to pcductape-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with 'unsubscribe' in the Subject field OR by logging into the Web interface.
