Well... I am able to boot Windows XP now. But what happens is after I boot and see the start up screen, the computer freezes up. I don't see any error messages during the boot. NONE!!! The computer freezes up just before it takes me to the "LOG IN" screen. I tried to boot using Windows XP cd now. Nothing works. :-( Ur previous step was successful mate. We are almost there. But 20% to 25% left. :-( I can't use Windows Advanced Menu option also (by pressing F8 key during the boot). Any suggestions mate?
