    booting problem : MBR 123FA:^

    hello all

    i made a knoppix install (hdd3) on a win200 pc (sda1). i choosed to install grub in the MBR.
    now when i would like to to boot, only the text MBR 123FA: with the blinking cursor after appears. nothing happens...

    what does this mean? what can i do now?

    thanks for any help to a newbie

    cheers

    This is some kind of Grub basic menu peculiar to the MBR installed by Debian. I have been trying to induce it on my system but couldn't. A google search for MBR 123FA yields only 2 pages -- that just shows you how rare this situation is.

    All I can suggest is, when you see 123FA, try hitting "1", or "2" or "3" or "F" or "A" and see what happens.

    Interesting problem -- tell us more when you learn more.

    fix it :-)

    thanks for your comment!

    i wrote with the reinstallation cd from windows a new partition boot sector to the system partition (The fixboot command is only available when you are using the Recovery Console)

    that helps! windows is bboting now like before
