Recently, I used Drive Scrubber 2 on an older Dell Dimension computer that I want to donate to a women's shelter. Now that I've completed the scrubbing process the computer only recognizes the "A" drive. I created a boot disk as per instructions on a 1.44mb diskette. When I try and boot the computer from this disk to load Windows the Drive Scrubber program is loaded first. I then press escape "Esc" to get our of Drive Scrubber and am sent into DOS where the "A" drive prompt appears. When I instruct the computer to locate the "D" or "C" drive it gives me the error message "Invalid Drive D" or "Invalid (whichever drive I'm trying to access). What can I do to get the computer to recognize the "D or C" drives so I can reload Windows XP? At the A:\> (I am typing D or D: or D:\, but none of those seem to work. I can get a directory when I type "dir" at the A prompt.

Thanks for any suggestions!

to load xp you should just need to boot from the xp cd...there should be no need for a boot disk
