re: Langa Letter: XP's No-Reformat, Nondestructive Total-Rebuild Option
I'm trying to do this on a computer that I have been using for a long time but with a 9 month old 320 g drive. a virus is preventing me from using any programs or internet from c:even though it boots ok and the desktop looks fine. It just wont do anything. My screen 7 does not mention the repair option. It doesn not recognize a damaged xp.but it is telling me I have a either a full partition or damaged or not formated right and is telling me I have to format the partitian and that I have 131072mg left (which doesn't seem right) It only leads to distructive re install NO REPAIR OPTION. Do I just have the wrong set up disc? what now? .

re: Langa Letter: XP's No-Reformat, Nondestructive Total-Rebuild Option
This article has saved my bacon more than once but now after screen 4 I'm stuck on "examining the hard drive.....atapi...."etc at the bottom. This machine won't even boot from a ubcd4win cd so I'm assuming the hard drive is fried.
Any ideas?

Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
