In the middle of the upgrade (after it had deleted files from 2000 to install XP) when it told me I had 39 minutes left of installing xp...my computer froze up. I restarted the computer and it booted back to a screen that said "restarting set-up". Well, after this screen it loaded a blue screen.....then the mouse pointer and froze up again. Now I have tried many times to start again to which it goes to the same screen, restarts itself, and goes round and round until I shut it off. I tried F8 to try to boot last known good conf, I tried to boot 2000 but it no longer an option. Now, after about 25 tries it will no longer even go to the set-up screen. It just goes through its rounds. I guess what I am most concerned about are the pictures on my hard-drive. How would I get to these now (being that there is neither 2000 or xp installed). I am on my other computer now that has xp prof installed on it (which I upgraded the same way from ME)
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I have scoured a few sites like this and have not found a similar problem.
