so I think I screwed up my father-in-law's PC. I tried adding a partition (with Partition Magic) on his XP Pro and I got an error msg - error code 1531 - too few clusters. Needless to say at that point, I had to reboot and once I did that, it went to the "Windows did not shut down properly...." screen, with all the options for Safe Mode, Last Good Configuration, Normal Boot etc. I tried all of them, but as soon as it loaded up to the Windows XP progress bar, it'd start all over.
It's an old machine... specs are:
-Windows XP Pro SP3
-Seanix SiS-651 mobo
-Intel® Pentium® 4 CPU 2.40GHz
-111gb WD HD
I do have the XP install CD. I'd prefer to fix it rather than re-install, but if it's easier to do the latter, than so be it.
Any suggestions before I attempt it myself would be appreciated!
