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