Windows with Linux..can't boot windows or install
I am REALLY NEW to Linux and need major help.
I recently installed Mandrake Community 10.0 onto my PC which was running Win XP.
Ever since then, I have not been able to get back into Windows. I have tried re-installing windows, repartitioning, formatting, etc. and then reinstalling Win XP and when the machine tries to boot I get the message "Cannot Load Operating System".
Unfortunately I need to still keep Windows because of my job and applications that run on it that are not currently available in Linux yet.
What can I do to get Windows XP to reinstall successfully and also to run Linux?
Thanks in advance for any help. I greatly apreciate it.
