XP Won't boot after trying to copy hard drive,

  mik61ish 22:32 15 May 2008

I tried copying my 40GB hard drive which is getting noisy to another 20GB drive I have as a slave with Paragon Drive copy 8.5, I selected source 40GB to 20GB to save. The system shut down and now it will not reboot, just keeps recycling the black XP screen then shuts down again. I have tried repairing with XP disc fixmbr is there another option with XP repair?

Perhaps the quart pot is less than half full ?

Haven't used Paragon but I go with Technotiger about capacity.
Have a look in my computer > drive C: > Properties
With luck the used space will be <20Gb

Crossing fingers and hoping C: still functions, why not disconnect the data cable from the slave drive and see if the PC boots normally
