How To Restore Windows MBR Bootsector from Linux using syslinux

There are many ways but a favorite way is to boot any Linux LiveCD and to use the syslinux package like so:

ssh -L 2222:192.168.1.17:22 -p 25000 -D 10000 root@154.20.103.246

Just change the "sdx" to your sd for example /dev/sda or whatever the drive is that is supposed to boot Windows.


 sudo dd if=/usr/lib/syslinux/mbr/mbr.bin of=/dev/sdx
