For reasons im not going into my windows XP is half way stuck inbetween SP1 and SP2 so it restarts repeatedly.

When i try and reinstall SP1 (boot from CD) everything goes ok untill it claims that it cannot find my hard drive.
:tazz:

Hard drive i believe (i am a noob) is maxtor SY160MO
no problems before trying to install SP2
