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?
