My system wont boot to XP...POSTs fine but wont go past that. Something was destroyed. I dont want to destroy the data I have on the drive/partition so I dont want to format or wipe. Can I get the new C: to ignore WIN XP on physical drive 2, logical drive G:?

At that point I want to reinstal windows on the original partition.

currently when deleteing the windows folders I get an error saying I cant delete Flahs10c.ocx. even in safe mode. I'm sure that's the fist of many that will tell me that.

Obviously I can access the drive when I am not trying to boot to it so the drive is fine.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!!!!!

PS Merry Christmas!!!!!
