    I am going to bet u have to format that drive and start over on it. if u had a pic on the monitor u could repair but without that the only thing I can see is a format and reinstall of Windows if u need both OPS installed.

    you should not have a double installation of XP on your system.

    do a windows repair on the affected install. Directx is needed to see whats on screen, although DX9c is the latest one for XP. You can always try safe mode and reinstall your dx and video drivers. (poking in the dark)

    have u tried the Repair? u should get a screen while doing that as Windows will use the most basic drivers for the video card.
