Help w/ MBR Problem
Hi all, i get following message when i boot my computer.
L 80 80 80 80 80 80... ...and so on
I googled and found out that it's something wrong w/ my MBR
I'we used Linux for 3 days and cannot fix my MBR (master boot record)
I use Slax 5, a Slackware with KDE 3.4. I have installed it w/ hte full install on my hd.
i got 2 other HD (NTFS formatted, onw w/ my old crashed Windows XP)
My Slax installation worked fine for 5-6 boots but now everything that happens is that the error message comes up. My hd is intact I think 'couse i can use the files on it now when I have booted w/ Slax live cd.

the L 80 80 80....... is usualy due to bad geometryL 80 means that LILO loaded the boot sector, but a disk not ready error
prevented it from finding the second stage boot loader (/boot/boot.b)Code:
