yes you can repair it, see the sixth post from the top in THIS xp forum.
Yes, I saw that -thanks very much.
The problem is I don't get the repair option (R) when the XP CD starts - just partition deltion or make new partition.
There are two versions of XP runnjng on this drive now - the first version is a good , new install but the second version is the one that is giving me issues - if I try to delete the partition, i will lose all the installed programs...I know there should only be one ver of XP installed
There is only 8 gig available for another partition
Any more ideas?
