Hi, i just installed ubuntu 8.10 on External USB Harddrive (/dev/sdb) and install the bootloader on (hd0). I can boot from Internal Harddrive (hd0), but i cannot boot directly from External USB Harddrive, i have BOOTSECT.BAK file on C:\ drive.

How to recover my Vista BootSector (BOOTSECT.BAK) ?

Thanks,
