So something happened to my HD last night and when it restarted the message "no operating system found" came up. I put in the XP cd and booted from it in hopes of doing a repair, but there is not that option. What can I do to fix this??
Thanks a lot

also, if I perform an XP reinstall, what are my chances of loosing word and similar files on the desktop?
Thanks again

Have you heard of backing up your user files to an external HDD or CD?

ok nevermind i guess, apparently the seagate HDD diagnostic is the too to fix whatever problem i was having. i think it may have been a boot file problem since I have a dual boot on the machine
