    Wii mod seems good Two dead PC's though

    Just Wondering how many otheres have lost a hard drive or windows instilation to WBFS manager 3.0. On the first one I thought it was a bad sector on the hard drive that corrupted my MBR. I hought in the back of my head that there was a chance I may have made the mistake of hitting format withought selecting the right drive letter. After a restart it just sits with the blinky on a black screen.

    On this one, I think my seven year old opened it thinking it was a game and a few clicks later the same thing happened. This time it looks like all the info is there but it swapped my c: snd D: drives.

    Questio one, Why in the world would it let it just kill your operating system? Question two, How do I fix it on a win seven 64bit acer laptop with no recovery disk. They put a recovery partition on the hdd.

    Generally the recovery partition is "hidden" to the system and can be accessed either through the BIOS or via a boot disc (more the former than the latter). It seems to be an issue of human error in reading/deciphering your post, yet you seem to lay it at the feet of the WBFS client.

    In a sense, yes. Possible human error, yet why is it that possible. Why so easy, seems crappy to me. How about a pop up, do you really want to do this? that would be a good idea. A big red flashing DONT DO IT! lol Am I the only one to have this?

    Now, my windows commands dont seem to be that great, How do I go about accessing it? I used a Vista disk to boot it and get to a command. I can see the drives , a 100mb c drive and a 300 gig d drive. Its not formatted just windows cant figure out how to boot.

    Turn your laptop on and see if there's an option for Recovery or Restore in the BIOS. The WBFS client doesn't behave like a normal format or partition program because it really isn't (in the sense you're asking about). Still, sure a confirmation box wouldn't hurt lol.

    Nope, This laptop dont flash to the bios before windows. Even on the HP desktop when it displayed the bios I tried hitting the F10 for system recovery and it didnt do anything. Im not to sure that would do any good though. It seems as if both times what it has done is swap the C drive with the recovery partition. Right now it shows C as a 100 mb drive labled SYSTEM reserve, and it shows a 300 gig d drive. I can view the folders when I boot it with my vista disk. Just cant boot seven. Wont even try. Acts like there is no Master Boot Record.
