1. You created another crappy thread title. Please stop doing this and don't direct posts to just one member. Now members will only see this as being directed towards me and I don't know anything about Windows.
2. You are allowed to post Windows questions, just place them in the correct forum. If you haven't noticed, I moved this to General where it's more suitable.
3. It really doesn't appear that you've started to spell check your posts. I know 5 year olds who can type and spell better than you, no pun intended once again.

use the XP boot CD (or a 98 boot disk)(or any windows bootable disk)

See if there is some kind of "repair" option where you can install the boot loader on the MBR. (mbr stands for master boot record)

Here are some links to help you:
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q...ws+mbr&spell=1
http://www.microsoft.com/resources/d...d_tro_ldau.asp

The command that you need to use is fixmbr so, you need to get to a command line somehow.

Like trickykid, I don't know much about windows, but I'm sure you will work it out- (after waxing lyrical about not being a newbie)

good luck.

BTW if you have bought a windows license, you should have access to Microsoft support. Don't hesitate to use it whenever you have a problem. They've charged you more than enough for that.

"ain't" won't go through the spell check for starters.

Using "sry" instead of "sorry" and "u" instead of "you" isn't bad spelling, it is just laziness.

Other words have been spelt right but are the wrong word, for example "no" instead of "know". Most people aren't looking for 100% correct grammar and spelling, just enough so that the post can be read easily.

As far as I know Windows questions are allowed in the General forum, however they must still follow the rules. In any case posting Windows questions in a Windows forum where they are Windows enthusiasts is a better option and you will get better, more accurate solutions (I assume).

As for your question, use the recovery console on the Windows XP installation disk. The command you need is `fixmbr` I think.

Ok so, this is actually going to be your last warning. Keep up this attitude and language and you'll find yourself banned rather soon.

This is not a threat but rather a promise. Clean up your language or don't use this site at all if you can't follow simple rules.

Actually spelt is correct, in English to spell is an irregular
verb, no idea why the yanks had to screw that up, too.


Cheers,
