My laptop crashed yesterday and now windows XP will not load at all. I am promptedAfter a long time of trying to start a message appears saying 'operating system not found' or somthing along those lines. I have tried to use the recovery cd-rom but no joy there, after going through the process and choosing to re-install by selecting the main partition i just get an errror message and am guided to restart the computer, thus starting the process all over again. I can get in to the recovery console using the CD, and this seems like my only option of doing anything. Any advice on how to rectify the situation?
ps now i am getting a message saying that setup didnt find any hard drives on my computer when i try to reinstall.any help would be appreciated! cheers
