In the last few weeks I have had some strange glitch that caused my Arch install to stop working. Its as if something happened to the hard drive. There is no specific cause that I can find.
A long time ago I had an install of another distro cause some real headaches with my harddrive so I suspect my MBR may be damaged. Could someone please provide instrucvtions on the best way to restore the MBR so I can create fresh partitions and re-install Arch??
A Windows boot disk with:
or a Grub boot disk with:
quit (or reboot)
Changing any of the details to suit your own box should do it.
The commands ozar mentioned must be typed in the grub shell.
