I spend the whole afternoon downloading from CNR (though i dont like it).But i encountered dozens of error,including for amsn,the one i already posted for psi and lots more..So i decided to remove freespire.I boot in xp (same HD) and deleted the freespire partition.Since my bootloader was GRUB, after restart my pc failed to boot (because there's no freespire to boot on)
So i used xp disk and used the FIXMBR command.The mbr was written nicely but after reboot...i got "invalid system disc error " my pc was doom.No bootable volume.I tried FIXBOOT and it also failed.Please advice me what im gonna do cause i dont want to format my HD..
(ps-not to be rude but i did this twice in suse 10.1.Deleting suse partitions and fixing mbr so that xp boots.honestly Freespire is the lamest distro so far)There is no knowledge that is not power

mostly this error comes up when your computer is set to boot from CDROM drvie. check BIOS first.

download windows 98 bootable floppy from www.bootdisk.com
its an exe file. double click on that ( you will need Windows machine to execute exe file ). it will ask for blank floppy and will make it bootable.
boot up from floppy and type 'fdisk /mbr'
if this doesn't work.... boot up from floppy again... execute these commands one by one. press enter after typing every command.
c: cd\windows\command attrib c:\msdos.sys -s -h -r copy c:\msdos.sys c:\msdos.xxx a: sys c: attrib c:\msdos.sys -s -h -r del c:\msdos.sys copy c:\msdos.xxx c:\msdos.sys attrib c:\msdos.sys +s +h +r
