Need to repair MBR from linux mint stored in USB


Hello there,

You can solve this problem in two ways.

1.       You can use your windows CD

2.       You can reset MBR from your linux mint also.

Now let’s see how you can change MBR using windows CD. Insert the CD into your CD driver and then from the installation window select repair. Another window will appear. From that window select cmd and a command prompt will appear. There first write bootrec.exe/fixmbr than enter. Your MBR would reset by this command.

Now you can repair MBR from mint also. Boot from linux mint and open the terminal and write

sudo apt-get install ms-sys

Now find out the partition in which the window is install. For that write

Sudo fdisk –l

It will show the partitions. From those find out the windows partition and again write on the terminal

Sudo ms-sys –m /dev/<the partition name>

The MBR would reset. Then reboot the computer.

Thank you,
