Is it possible to format HDDs /fix MBRs using a LiveCD?
I've playing about with lots of different distros (Ubuntu, SuSE, Xubuntu,and lastly Slackware 10.2) just installing them onto an older Toshiba Satellite Pro laptop, having a look to see which I prefer, and then installing a new one.
I have run into a problem trying to replace Slackware 10.2. I hoped to put SuSE back on for a work project, but something has gone awry with the boot.
LiLO starts, only looks to an older (I think) section, then hangs, forcing a reboot. My gut feeling is that I have messed up the mbr.
Is it possible to fix this using a Xubuntu or SuSE liveCD?
