    Linux/Windows question

    My windows machine is over my girlfreind's house and my cd and disks are back at my place, so unexpectanatly my windows machine gets the unmountable boot volume error. Simple question:

    Can a live Linux cd repair the UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME error with linux tools, and if yes, how?

    (I do a chkdsk /p /r then fixboot, fixmbr and windows is back to normal)

    You probably just need the chkdsk /p since the mbr and boot.ini must already be okay for you to boot far enough to get the UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME error. However, if your disk is NTFS, I wouldn't attempt a repair w/ Linux.
