Before installing Linux on this PC I had a dual OS on the other one

hangs giving error code L 99 99 99..........
It could be a Master Boot Record problem (corrupted). I seem to
remember that there is an automatic way of repairing the 'MBR' on the
Win XP installation disk. However, I don't run XP very often. I fire
it up maybe once every 12 months (or slightly more if I have to repair
my brother's PC). So, I am not sure if it is easy to get to...
I am only human, please forgive me if I make a mistake it is not deliberate.
Xmas may be over but, PLEASE DON'T drink and drive you'll make it to
the next one that way.
