I just bought an Alienware navigator with the OS removed by previous owner. I reinstalled xp media from the OEM disc, but I deleted the partitions and recreated them before the install. Now the system won't boot from the HD and continually loops starting and restarting before the welcome screen appears. I know I screwed up by deleting the partitions and lost some vital bios that is causing this, how do I get it back?
