My Mother's dimension 2400 had a bug and my sister in-law decided to "fix" it. Well she failed and I was called. I tried the "control+ f11" combo to invoke the restore partition, only to realize that by using the generic XP Install disk she had wiped away the Dell Master Boot record on the hard drive making the Restore function unavailable.


Is there any way to restore the MBR to what it was? A Dell download, perhaps?. If not, What manual steps do I need to run the restore utilityty on the hidden partition?
