My Netbook was dual-booting Windows 7 Starter and JoliCloud OS -essentially, Ubuntu- but I had some partitions and stuff I couldn't use, due to a lot of Chrome OS mucking around earlier.
Figured it'd be better to start from scratch, wipe, and start again. This is where my problem lies now.
Baring in mind, Acer Aspire One D255, no CD player. So I have Windows XP booting from a USB, that's fine. However, booting like that only shows the USB its on...it doesn't even SHOW the hard drive in the netbook itself. I deleted something crucial earlier, so I can't boot normally either. Something like "Missing operating system error: no such partition" appears.
So...I can boot from USB, yes, but when I do, it doesn't recognise the actual hard drive. Unless I can get it to do so, I can't format and install.
Is there any way at all I can access my hard drive, or have I done something irrepairable? Help please.
