Corrupt Boot Sector - Help Needed


Active Member

I need some help with my HD, when I try to boot up I get a failure to corrupt boot sector, I have tried to restore, replace the boot sector files but this fails too.

I am guessing the boot sector has become corrupt so I have purchased a replacement HD.

My question is, will I be able to copy over the full contents of the bad HD to the new one and then just use the Vista recovery to repair the boot sector files on the new drive?

If not, what will be the best course of action

Thanks in advance
