HelloI have been dual booting XP and Suse. I decided today that I need the disc space taken up by Suse and deleted the partition.I now can't boot from hard drive at all.I have tried going into the recovery console and doing fixmbr, but that hasn't worked.I have also tried installing XP again onto the old Suse partition but it copies the files across, reboots and starts all over again.Is there anyway I can fix my xp installation without losing any data?TIATas
Try a repair install of XP over itself.The fixmbr method usually works - did you do a special type of Suse install?
Thanks for that.How do I do a repair isntall? is it just like a normal install, specifying my C drive, or do I need to do something else?Thanks

I'm getting a read error now, so I'm assumin the hard drive is kaput
But I can't boot into the drive at all (following booting from CD and repairing etc it won't boot from HDD).I have gone into the repair console and run chkdsk /r which came back that the drive was okay.Ran the repair installation (again) and now, instead of disk read error, I get error loading operating system.Looks like I'm going to have do a full re-install, unless anyone can suggest something else?Please?
Okay, I've reinstalled windows.All looking good.Just got to get my system back the way it was :(
