    Install your Vista installation disk and start 'R'-mode

    Hope that helps.
    Cheers,
    Robin

    MBR Edit

    Hi,
    I don't have a Vista Recovery CD, i was really asking whether there are any tools available for linux which will rewrite the MBR as if it was done from a Windows Recovery Disk.
    Thanks
    Richard.

    Then you have to install Grub again.
    You can do this with lots of live cds.

    The SuperGRUB LiveCD can restore Linux or Windows bootloader:

    Super Grub Disk Webpage: Home Page

    Just download the current version, burn it to CD, and put it to work.
