Hi Everyone,

This is my first post! I can't get windows XP to boot up! I found another user on this website who was having the exact same problem (we even have the same computer etc.). I followed the instructions within that forum and now when I try to boot up windows all it says is "Boot 2". Here's a link to the forum/post I followed http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic459608.html
I'm really hoping you guys can help me with this. Again, I can't boot up in safe mode or anything. Thanks.

Hi I just realized I should post probably post the results of the GETxPUB (mbr.bin) file/process described in the post I followed before. The file is attached to this post. I'm going to post the (tdl_fix.txt) file created shortly. I hope this helps. Thanks.Attached File  mbr.zip   575bytes   1 downloads

Hello, and sorry for the delay.

After you ran this fix, did the computer boot up normally?

regards, Elise

Was mbr.bin created before or after you ran the TDL fix. If before, can you create a new dump for me and post it here?

regards, Elise

You made the wrong partition bootable. :)

Please do the following; in xPUD navigate to your flashdrive, open a terminal and type the following.

fdisk -ul > fdisk.txt

This will create a file named fdisk.txt on your flashdrive. Please copy/paste its contents in your next reply.

regards, Elise

Please download the following file and save it as mbr.bin to your flashdrive: http://www.bleepstatic.com/fhost/uploads/1/117-mbr.bin

Boot in xPUD, navigate to your flashdrive, make sure you see mbr.bin and click Tool > Open Terminal.

Type the following and press enter.

dd if=mbr.bin of=/dev/sda bs=512 count=1

Restart the computer afterwards and let me know if it boots now.

regards, Elise
