I'm in URGENT need of help here. If ANYONE can help please post back. i had recently installed fedora core 2 on my computer, but decided to delete the partitions. So I went into Computer Management in XP Home and deleted all the Fedora partitions. When I tried to reboot, i got a text version of the GRUB booter. Panicking, i reinstalled XP. GRRRR big mistake. now I have XP on two partitions. However, when I start the computer, two Windows XP Home Editions come up - normal practice for dual partition. BUT when I enter my old partition, the XP Home setup program comes up and says
SETUP is restarting......
and the computer reboots. I can access all my files from the other partition, I just cant get into it
. So - here come the questions, can I:
a) reinstall XP on the original partition without it swearing at me because I'm a pirate if I try to register the software.
transfer MOST of my files to the new partition and then delete the old one.
c) restore the system to normal.
any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thx
