I press enter and the machine boots up no problem.
Sooooo, is it possible to replace or repair the master boot record without destroying all the data? I have a 360GB hard drive with lots of data on it.

while i do agree...the MBR is not to be messed with lightly....in the case of an actual MBR error....it's your only choice to fix the MBR some way...be that a re-install of the os...or the fixmbr command....the fact that he's getting minor MBR errors now means that they will probablyl get worse later...fixing the MBR while it's still somewhat in tact is a better proposition that trying to recover data later
May I add another point: fixin the mbr should be used, in my opinion, only in those cases where no other option is possible. If the repair does not succeed all data may become inaccessible. If I understand correctly from the first post the computer starts well after a key is pressed, so there is nothing more serious then a slight inconvenience. Had it been my computer I doubt if I would take such an operation. I would rather leave it as it is.
