Looks like you lost one of the installs.. Do you still get the option as to which install to use when you boot the system??

Just to stick my nose in here, what you might try to do is use another older monitor which usually will handle a wider range of refresh rates than the newer ones. Then you may be able to see the system loaded and change the screen settings. Then you may be able to go back to your monitor and set it.

Just boot using your XP cd.. You should see a small message on the bottom of your screen "press any key to boot from cd".. Press a key..

During the setup phase, one of the options will be to remove everything from your c: drive and then another option to install XP on that drive.. Format it and install..

it says I am unable to format the partition the disk may be damaged. I need to select another partition. Should I try the one with just 8 MBs vs the one I tried with 19595 MBs?
