Hello To all members,
Right now i am in a big mess and would like the help of the members here. Ill try to explain my problem clearly..
Long story short..
Early today i was installing service pack 2 for windows xp when all of a sudden my computer just restarted out of nowhere and during installation... Next while it would load windows again it would again restart/powerdown completely without windows ever loading fully. So basically there is no way for me to access anything..
So what i did was try to run boot up by disk. I tried to do a repair by using my windows cd. It looked fine until it got to windows setup.. When it got there it asked me for a driver.. I think something to deal with usb.. ( it was during the installing drivers process)
Since it could not find the file i could not continue with the installation and the computer would restart.. i tried to do a last known good configuration it would do nothing...
So what i decided to do was install windows on my hard drive again.. But i was afriad that it would delete all my important info so instead of saving the installation file on c:\windows I named a new folder called OS BACkUP and it installed from there using the windows cd. Everything installed correctly but i cant access my old files.. Its not deleted thats for sure because i have my programs in tact.. But None of my previous user names are there.. It basically looks like a fresh version of windows xp.
Also when i start my computer now it gives me the choice of two OS... Windows xp home, and windows xp home.. obviously one is the fresh windows install and the other is my old files still frozen in the installation setup bug....
I hope this all made sense.. Any advice? Is there a way to fuse the two?
I will love the person who can help me through this!
