I have accidentally destroyed my laptop's ability to boot. I hope my parents have a Vista install disc. Otherwise I'm stuck here without my computer. I had a relatively harmless BOOTMGR is missing error, but it seems I've destroyed even that. Very little of the data on the machine is irreplaceable, but it will be annoying, especially as it's one of my three alotted Spore installs. Which is a good game, by the way.

Huzzah for Idiotic DRM. Severe enough that I refuse to buy Spore because of it.

What happened to your MBR?

I removed GRUB (and restored the Windows Vista bootloader), which worked fine, and then I tried to use Gparted and ntfsresize to re-enlarge my Windows partition after removing my Linux ones. Of course, I completely borked this process.

Spore - I has it; haven't played it yet. Heck haven't even installed it yet.
