Windows got corrupted how to restore?

Postby sschoe2 on Sat Mar 09, 2013 1:31 pm

Hi all I bought a second hard drive for Linux Mint and was going to keep the first for Vista. Anyways i've been using mint (64 bit Cinnamin Nadia) for a few months and when I tried to get back into windows I couldn't. It wouldn't boot at all nor give me a menu for safe mode or system restore. I tried to reinstall vista but that didn't work either. How can I restore Windows and hopefull leave mint alone.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
