Hi,

Have you used Partition Magic to partition the Hdd?
If yes, have you created the 2 rescue disks when you installed PM?
If yes, use them to recover the OS.
If no, boot into BIOS and change the CD-rom to be the first boot device then
save and exit BIOS setup. Boot from the XP CD, delete all partitions and
perform a clean installation of XP.
Warning: all data files would be lost.
