Whoops, need help
OK folks, here's the sitch: I had WinXP Pro installed on drive C, and drive D was my media drive. I wanted to install XP on drive D, and switch the drive letters. I managed to get XP installed on drive D OK, cleared off drive C, and ran Partition magic so that I could format drive C and switch the drive letters. Unfortunately, when the computer rebooted for Partition Magic, something didn't go right and now I can't boot into Windows. My BIOS has limited choices for selecting boot devices (HDD, CDROM, or Floppy) so I can't get it to boot from the drive which has a perfectly good installation of Windows. I think I somehow managed to switch the drive letters by physically switching the IDE cable connections, but I still get a "Missing operating system" message, which tells me the computer is still looking for the OS on the empty drive, which I think is now drive D.
I can't find my XP setup disk or any emergency boot disks. I move around C:, D:, and A: with a regular system floppy disk, but that's it. Is there a way to make the good drive boot windows and/or is there a way to do a system restore from DOS?
Thanks in advance for any help.
