  1. Ok now, this is long so stay and listen please,
    I had WinXP SP1 installed on hda -> 80 Gigs w/2 partitions C: and D:
    then i had this great *** idea to install Fedora Core 2 on my second hard drive hdb-> 10Gigs even though partition magic told me that something was wrong with the geometry or something, so I installed FC2(fedora core 2) on my second Hard drive with grub -> on my MBR now well I cant boot into Windows...I have a Sony Vaio and they didnt give me the Windows XP CD, and i lost my partition magic cd,all i have now is FC2, when i try to boot it gives me teh blue screen, but i cant read it, because it just reboots, i cant get onto any sort of safemode! Yea! so help me please!

    You did not mention this but I have to ask, because I have fixed an installation with a Windows CD that was not the copy used for the original insallation.Do you have a friend with a CD you could use? Then try a repair.
