So, while I was starting up my Windows XP Desktop Computer, I pressed “Ctrl F11” to see if I could get to the system restore. I assumed there would be a control panel type thing that would be displayed like my Vista, and even before resetting the computer, there would be warnings and everything.
...So I pushed the two buttons, “Ctrl F11” and this came up on a black screen:
Loading PBR for descriptor 3...done.
And now my computer won't start up past that. I don't know what the heck I did, but I did not back up my files because I wanted to see if there was a way to do it without a disk before I loaded everything onto the external hard drive… So I am clueless here. My main questions are:
- What the heck did I do!?
- How do I fix it?
- Are all of my files GONE forever?
