The MBR was compressed (God knows how he did it), but I'm having a heck of a time trying to restore it. I don't have a Windows 7 64bit DVD Laying around because I'm at college. The best I have right now, is a Linux ISO for 13.10. Any suggestions on ways I could fix this? (WITHOUT A WIPE!) - Thomas P.S. Going to install Ubuntu 13.10, give it a small partition, and have Grub overwrite it until I can figure out something else. He needs it for school, and I need it for RDCing my computers at home.
