    UPDATE: How to REVERT from Dynamic to Basic — How to do ‘fixmbr’


    by eggy ·

    Maybe a better question is: How to revert from Dynamic to Basic type disk when Windows OS is unavailable?

    Any ideas how to do a fixmbr when Recovery Console is not available?

    I converted my hard disk from Basic type to Dynamic. When I rebooted the system responded with an MBR error message (and stopped). Subsequent reboots don’t give the same error, but just a blinking, underline cursor.

    I’d like to try fixmbr, but don’t have access to Recovery Console (no XP Install CD on-hand). Any ideas of alternative approaches?

    Or maybe you know how to un-do a failed converstion attempt?
