I've tried running bootcfg /rebuild from the recovery console and the existing installation is NOT found. I've started running fixmbr and it states that a non-standard or invalid Master Boot Record was found and that if I run fixmbr it may make my system unbootable. I've got too much data and too many applications on this drive to have to do a clean install. I have NOT tried fixboot.
Has anyone else run into this before? If so, how did you fix it? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm lucky in that I have a working system, so it's more annoying in my case than anything else. However, strangely enough, I'm a PC/Systems Consultant that, just 2 days ago, was called to a customer's location where they were getting a "Disk read error..." when trying to boot their system. After determining that the drive was physically OK (used the Ultimate Boot CD to determine that drive and data was readable), I tried everything, that I'd tried above, on the customer's drive, with the same results as on my drive. The difference here is that the customer no longer has a working system. I had to temporarily install his drive into another machine so that the customer could access the data and work with it. So, I'm sure that any suggestions that can help me with my system will also help me with my customer's system.
Thanks in advance for any help anyone can provide...
