Reboot and each time choose a different operating system to open and then you will know which operating system is valid.
You will then have to edit the boot loader...it is easy..
I am not going to tell you how to edit the boot loader unless you answer.
AOL is so easy to install...on the new operating system just reinstall AOL...you will have all your AOL stuff just like on the other operating system.
I got the typical problem out of nowhere this morning. Last night XP was just fine,
and this morning at first boot up, the typical files appeared when
there is a problem...win.com, DBluff,Himem and etc were either missing
or corrupted....So no way to restore it, the recovery disk couldn't,
so I had to reinstall it on another partition. Okay, fine...now, I
wanted to copy my AOL program over to the new partition from the C
drive and its just not there...gone. How is this possible? I did not
do anything to the C drive where I had aol and XP installed previously. In fact,
I do not even see the old windows. Add/remove shows nothing as far as
any programs installed. When I first booted up after the
reinstallment, a menu appeared showing me 3 xp versions...the top one
was highlighted. It asked me which one should I start. I HAD NO
IDEA...SO i CHOSE THE HIGHLIGHTED ONE AND IT TURNED OUT THAT IT WAS
THE NEW VERSION. i DID A search for aol in all my partitions and none
show up and I made sure that in Folders options, I checked to show all
hidden files and etc. I'm going nuts.
Windows asked me if I wanted to install xp in another partition and highlighted it. I chose to say yes, because there were files on the old c drive that I wanted to copy over. my system is P4 2.80 mhz 1024 mb hidden files and etc. I'm going nuts, I said that, didn't I?
