I have recently installed Ubuntu 9.1 and am impressed with it.
Although i can no longer get Xp pro to boot up.
On start-up I get the choice as to run Ubuntu or Xp,when keying down to Xp and pressing enter,
I just get a black screen with a flashing cursor.
I have set the bios to boot from cd-rom then Hdd and installed my copy of Xp.
It wont proceed any further than a blue screen
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you have seen this stop error screen,restart your computer.If this screen appears again,
follow these steps.....( obviously I have tried again)
Check for viruses on your computer.Remove the newly installed hard drives or hard drive controller.
Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated.
Run CHKDSK/F to check for hard drive corruption,and then retstart.
Stop: OxOOOOOO7B (OxF78D663C, OxCOOOOO34, OxOOOOOOOO, OxOOOOOOOO)
Does anyone have any pointers at all as to how I can recover Xp
I have two WDC hard drives one 320gb and one 500gb on my system and they are partioned.
Many thanks MRTOPS
