  1. Hello and greetings from london.Can't get Windows XP to start.

    Hi,
    I am a new member to the group.
    I have a problem starting windows XP. I bought a new disk installed it as a primary slave, formatted it and partitioned it using XP. I named the new partition E and made it active (silly me!) because I wanted to make a copy of XP to this new drive/partition. I accidentally disconnected the power before copying the system files and XP on this drive (E) but because it's the active disk I can't get windows to load. How can I get windows back? How can I make drive (C) active again? Please help I am so desperate I have a project for college to finish!

    Thanx in advance,

    Sybella
