The scenario: My uncle PC; one 20GB HDD and 2 partition, c: contains Win ME (arrghhh) and d: Win XP Pro SP1 (fewwhhh). He loves Win ME so much although it crashes repeatedly on him, his kids uses Win XP Pro (smart kids). After various ME crashes he send the PC to a PC repair shop to reinstall Win ME again. The shop formatted c: drive and do a clean reinstall of ME. Of course XP now wont boot although all the XP files on d: remains intact. What I want to know is how to restore XP boot sector using the Windows Recovery Console, only to restore the boot files. I dont want to do a full repair installation of XP, because I think its inpractical.
