Re: Help! Messed up my MBR, don't have backup!
For a quick fix, a provided you have a backup to boot dos, reboot
under drive a: for dos, get onto the c: drive, and run "fdisk /mbr". This
will restore the c: disk so that it will boot dos automatically.
For future reference, whenever you rebuild the kernel, it's a good idea
to backup (copy) your old kernel to another file. That way, if something
goes wrong, you can reboot under you emergency boot and restore your
old kernel. Also, your lilo.conf file looks incomplete, and this might
be the reason for the "unexpected eof". Here's a copy of my lilo.conf, modified
so that it will (hopefully) work for you:
# LILO configuration file
# generated by 'liloconfig'
# Start LILO global section
# End LILO global section
# Linux bootable partition config begins
# Linux bootable partition config ends
# DOS bootable partition config begins
other = /dev/hda1
label = dos
table = /dev/hda
# DOS bootable partition config ends
Hope this is helpful! :-)
