Hi, I was playing around yesterday and decided to install linux onto a separate partition of my drive for my laptop. I found an old PartitionMagic lying around and used that to partition my drives. I followed its instructions for installing new operating systems and I had to install BootMagic on a FAT32 partition in order to dual boot XP and Linux.

The problem came when my laptop crashed during the partition. It told me to enter my PartitionMagic rescue disks. The problem is that my laptop does not have a floppy drive so I never bothered to make the rescue disks. Does anyone know anyway to help me? Right now, I can't start Windows XP at all. Thanks.
