More about need help asap please
  1. multiple OS's on one system is just a big headache....had xp and redhat on my school laptop.....big pain in the ass
  2. If you want to run multiple OS's, go get VMServer or VMPlayer from www.VMWare.com. Keeps the host system clean and permits the use of dozen's of different operating systems.
  3. Yup I'd just format and re-install. Buy one of those usb-IDE cables, slave your hard drive to someone else's computer to get your files you need off of it, then just reinstall Windows.

    Before you do that...

    Load up the Reovery Console and use the FIXMBR option. Ignore the warning, and this should allow you to boot into Windows. Of course backup first- as they COULD cause data loss, but can prevent a total F&R.
