Win7 Says Source Disk Needs Initializing

Postby kevkerry » Mon Oct 24, 2011 8:54 am

Hi,

My Windows 7 PC says that the HDD from my sky+ box isn't initialized. I'm hoping that it is just the mbr that is corrupt and have seen mentions of FixSkyMBR.zip & FixSkyBPB.zip in these forums. Are these files freely available?

Many Thanks

Update.

Found both files on another section of the forum. Used the search facility to find them. When I run them this is what I get:

C:\CopyPlus>fixskymbr 1
Fixing MBR on drive 1...
Could not get size of drive (error 21)
This drive is already partitioned

C:\CopyPlus>fixskybpb 1 -f

Sky BIOS Paramter Block Fixer 1.03
==================================

Opening \\.\PHYSICALDRIVE1...

Read and check MBR...
Could not read drive (error 21)

Anyone know what error 21 is? Just want to make sure I've tried everything possible before biting the built and wiping the disk and startin from scratch.

Cheers
