and I was informed that the procedure went successfully and it required a reboot. Once it restarted and after loaded the BIOS, I got a message saying "MBR error 2" and it would just sit there, not loading XP.
I was adviced to use the recovery console and perform FIXMBR. Well I did and now it seems to have gotten worse. Now I don't even see the error message but just a blank black dos screen...
What could I do?
Could I recover my files?
Does this require me to buy a new hardware? (HD or motherboard)
If I were to do a fresh install of XP, would that fix the problem? (last resort)
