Ok here's the story. I have an IBM T-60 laptop which is/was running two partitions on a 120gb HD, one partition was about 80gb and had Windows 7 Rc which i've been using for about 3 months now. The other partition was about 35gb or so and had Windows XP on it.
I use to use both operating systems but over the past month and a half or so I have compeltley stoped using XP, but yesterday I accendently hit enter when the cursor was over "windows xp" on the OS selection screen during boot.
When XP loaded I randomly had this really super annoying viruis called "winbluesoft" I fooled around with it for awhile to try and remove it but when I realized it was stopping me from opening task maneger, regedit and intstalling any programs what so ever I said screw it and decided to just format the partition since I didn't use it anymore.
So today I went into my Windows 7 partition and went to My Computer and tried to Partition the xp drive from there and it said "Unable to Complete Format". So then I went to partition Magic and Tried to format it from there. I looked like it was going to work and it was going to complete the foramt upon start up.
After it tried to Format it once with an error it rebooted and now my computer isn't recongizing any Hard Drives what so ever! The computer just flashes the BIOS screen and then goes to a black screen with a blinking Crusor in the top left hand corner. I don't know what to do now and I would rather not have to format my HD with Windows 7 on it.
Any Help would be Awesome!!
Thank You for Your Time
