Desperately need help!
Total crash and HD damage after reordering the GRUB list in a dual boot installation.
I had just successfully installed and activated OpenSuse11 via a double-boot configuration on a primary VISTA partition and obtained a GRUB list:
b) Windows 1
c) Windows 2
d) a fourth item which I do not remenber.
All this before doing my first complete backup, which I was about to do using some tools to produce the necessary image file.
Then I had the unfortunate idea of reordering the GRUB list in order to show a) Vista and b) OpenSuse. All this following the OpenSuse menus and commands.
This caused a total system crash.
I am convinced that this operation damaged the MBR and probably the containing sector.
The main harddisk is NOT even visible and never accessible.
Is there any way/tool to repair the master boot record, at least to try to reset it back to the original VISTA configuration?
Thanks and best regards
