Corrupt Partition Boot Record

    I have a CentOS 5 installation that is running ISPConfig

    Unfortunately, the server crashed. I don't have access to it right now, but I am wondering what the best thing to do is.

    My colocation support took a look at it, and they said that:

    "It is not detecting SATA 0 then bails on error bad PBR descriptor."

    So it sounds like the PBR corrupted somehow, or the drive is entirely dead.

    Do you guys have an suggestions on the best way to handle this? Will I be able to access the files on this drive, even though the boot record is corrupt? Unfortunately, I did not have it RAIDed :(

    Is it possible to restore a corrupt PBR?

    Thanks guys, you are always very helpful with ISPConfig, so I hope you can help with my Linux/hardware problem as well!
