Help! Messed up my MBR, don't have backup!
I built a new kernel (2.0.29) and copied it from arch/i386/boot
I then made a sym link zImage->/boot/zImage.
Next I ran lilo which is were I had a total brain failure.
I built the kernel above on my P90 for a 386.
I forgot what machine I was on when I ran lilo! I was doing all
of this from a xterm on my Sun logged into my P90.
Now my P90 is screwed up. Here is how my P90 is setup:
/dev/hda1 Ide dos drive 500+M
/dev/hdb1 Ide linux drive 130M
I use a boot floppy to boot Debian Linux 1.2 on my P90.
I made the boot floppy by cp /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/zImage /dev/fd0.
I tried using lilo to forget about my linux drive and just boot
dos but I think I ended up messing things up. I tried:
When I boot the machine I get LILO then unexpected EOF loading dos.
Is there any way I can rebuild my MBR so my dos partition works
again? Next time I will remember what machine I am on before
I do something this stupid again.
I hope I can recover from this or else I'm in trouble since my
P90 is my machine at work! :(
