Ubuntu changed my boot sector, so now I can't boot into windows xp. How can I restore the boot sector, even though I lost my restore disk?

Asked by skreis on 2009-12-02

I have two hard drives in a RAID configuration. I tried to install Ubuntu on an external hard drive, thinking that Ubuntu would only change that drive. Instead, it changed the boot sector on my internal drives. Now I can't boot into windows xp or ubuntu (I can still boot into ubuntu from the cd). How can I undo what Ubuntu did? (i.e., I want to restore my internal hard drives to their pre-ubuntu configuration). I can't find my recovery cd from Dell.

You can use supergrub to install a boot loader

Can you help with this problem?
