DustinW Posted July 18, 2009 Share Posted July 18, 2009 So i had xp on a machine of mine, and decident to partition the drive. I added two others all of them = out to 50gb. I then proceeded to install windows 7 and ubuntu. After running ubuntu i got a few errors that applications will not run. The disk checks out fine on several deep hardware diags. The error i was getting is grub3 failed to load. I know this is an issue with the master boot record. I tried repairing the mbr with an xp recover disk, and windows 7 recovery disk in their command lines. And a few other nifty tricks up my sleeve. I think its getting confused because there was a smaller 4th partition that got corrupt. Any suggestions. Ive been working on macs over the last few years and not up to speed on xp and windows 7 as a current windows tech would be. Ive heard that partition magic on hirens cd may help. It would be nice to recovery so i dont have to go through all the installs again. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
