I screwed something up with a hard drive, and now I'm trying to get it bootable again.
I had Windows working fine, but it somehow assigned H:\ to the system disk on installation. In trying to edit the registry to change this (my mistake) I hosed everything up. I was going to just boot to my Windows XP disc again to reinstall, but now I'm receiving BSOD STOP error 0x0000007B every time.
I did some hunting around and it looks like this is related to a corrupt MBR on the hard disk, and found recommendations to run FIXMBR from the repair console. The problem is I can't boot to the hard drive, OR from the Windows disc to reach the recovery console, I get the BSOD. Does anyone know how I can easily erase/rewrite the MBR on the hard disk in this situation? I already tried using the BartPE disc and hit the same wall (it loads some kind of Windows kernel, I believe). I thought there might be some kind of bootable linux disc out there that could run something to fix the hard drive.
Any help would be appreciated...
