i have a similar problem.
So I reboot to the XP cd, press R, it takes me to a black screen with white type asking me "Which windows installation would you like to log onto.
All I see is this, 1: C:\WINDOWS
So, what do I do now?
If I type "1", I get this, "C:\WINDOWS"
I am so lost, what do I do next. Please walk me through this like I am an idiot.
