Is there a way to move MBR to another drive? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Background:
    I installed Vista RTM on one of my 2 harddrives a month ago or so. Since a few weeks that harddrive has started to behave badly and Vista is displaying a message stating that I should backup all my files since the drive is soon about to die. Since I have warranty on the drive I just needed to install vista on the other drive and then send the faulty drive to Samsung for replacement.

    I did the install and transfered all files but when I removed the faulty drive system wont starts since the bootmanager is on that drive. Is there anyway other than doing a total reinstall to make the new harddrive bootable?

    Thanks in advance,
    Mikael Petersson
