Uninstalling with FIXMBR?
I tried to follow the HOWTO, but my Windows CD which came with my laptop seems to be made for recovery-only, when i boot from the CD i am presented with a graphical inteface where I can chose to either make a complete re-install, a reinstall with my personal files left, or DOS prompt. I've tried the last two options. When I start DOS-prompt and type "fixmbr" it says: "Bad command or file name."
When I chose "restore without changing personal files" it shows an error message saying something like "could not change OS"
Anyway my question is: Does my CD lack the Recovery Console or am I doing something wrong? (I've tried pressing R at different times, but it seems there's really no time for that...and it doesn't work)
Is there any other way to use the FIXMBR command (Like from a Floppy or directly in windows?)
