iaStor indicates you have a SATA drive. Also since iaStor isn't on the XP CD, I'm guessing you have a modified XP CD.
What happens if you use a real XP CD and the F6 floppy method?
I had a brief power outage at my house last night, and when I tried to start up my computer this morning, XP failed to boot. It gets to the logo/loading screen, but then switches to a BSOD for a brief second then restarts itself.
About my system:
-I have Ubuntu dual booted on Grub with XP
-Ubuntu is on the same drive (but different partition) as XP
-I have a seperate Fat32 shared drive
-I can load to Ubuntu
-I can access/read/write everything on my windows partition (from Ubuntu)
-The repair function on my WinXP install disk gets stuck on the screen that says:"Examining Disk 0 at Id 0 on bus 0 on iaStor"
-Safe mode, Start Normally, and Last Known Configuration all do the same thing (restart the computer)
What I'm hoping for is any sort of outcome that doesn't involve me reinstalling Windows, and all my applications and games.
I can backup critical information from Ubuntu, but I don't know of any way to backup my programs and settings. From windows I could use the Automatic Backup thing, but I obviously can't do the same from Ubuntu.
Any help would be appreciated.
