Since Windows 7 still boots, see this: http://neosmart.net/wiki/display/EBCD/Recovering+the+Windows+Bootloader+with+EasyBCD
asus u46e-bal notebook
dual boot windows 7 and mandriva linux 2011
grub boot loader ( still intact)
Now, when trying to boot into linux it tries and then stops with only a black screen - just cannot boot into linux but CAN still boot into Windows7,
Have tried knoppix but will not mount disk
" cannot mount disk to /mnt -system"
The mbr is of course on the windows7 partition.
Would like to know if there a safe way to restore the mbr in attempts to recover entry into linux partition.
