Having problems with your MSI Wind U120-020US Netbook ?

I want to do repair missing system file on my MSI notebook, but don't want to reinstall. How do I do a repair from the recovery cd which just seems to want to format and reinstall everything?


Answers :

On the recovery CD there is an option repair just right before you press the F8(before you perform format) there is a selection that says press F8 to continue or R to repair, if you ss R it will Brin you to a command promt type "fixboot" and hit enter then type "fixmbr" the hit enter again type exit and see if your pc boot normally
Alternatively, use a windows cd as if you are installing a fresh copy. if it is xp you using, go until you accept the agreement by pressing f8. after that it will give you an option to press some keys to continue, press the R for recovery without formating, it will repair you windows and keep your data.
