Hi there,

My first post so hope you can help. I installed Norton goback on windows home edition for xp. While trying to re-install xp the system refused to re-boot. After checking with various dos based partition progs it implied the MBR was corrupted. After mending MBR I am now getting disc reading error. I suspect the fact that windows can't read from my boot or partition info is because it says I have a non standard partition table, ie it's a DDO from Nortons goback.

Now I could solve this if I could get norton goback to run from Windows recovery console or DOS, accessing DOS in xp is nigh on imPOSIBLE, so what to do? I read from a member here eephraim who had a similar problem, he said he solved it after rebuilding his partition table, that sounds major gek stuff, I have bootmaster rescue disk and Rannish partition repair, and access to Partition mAgik 8, but not sure how to go about this with the goback confusing things. Have been doing this for a week now with limited success!

If anyone can tell me how to either invoke, goback somehow, or rebuild partition table in slightly laymans terms I'd be gratful. Never had this much dificulty before, and I am fairley pc literate.
