The machine I am writing this on has been playing up for a long, long time and each time I switch on I wait in trepidation to see whether or not it will actually boot up. Usually it does but I have to accept that it is coming to the end of its life.
I have a Windows XP machine, which I've never actually opened up. I propose to remove the master drive from the Linux machine on which Ubuntu is installed and insert it into the Windows one. It will then become the slave drive.
What I would like to know is how to create a new MBR on the Windows machine as I shall wish it to boot up into Ubuntu for 95% of the time.
Any advice/assistance will be gratefully accepted.
