That was a really interesting read, thanks. I didn't understand much but I got the jist of it.
Ugh, the last pic turned my stomach, as any Windows problems do.agmg,
you might have overwrit the MBR for your Windows install. I'm sure you can fix it.
1. Boot your PC with Windows XP CD and select Repair.
2. Then select the OS, once you are there you'll have a command line.
3. Type Administrator password. If Admin password is blank, just press Enter.
4. Type fixmbr, and then press Enter.
5. Restart PC.
I like to try to get the word out to backup the MBR of Windows before doing anything involving a change of Partitions under a multi-boot situation. Unless the Win Partition is "Defragmented" really tightly is easy to delete MBR playing on a Linux Partition.
1. Download mbfix from here. http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Hard-Disk-Utils/MBRFix.shtml
2. Extract all files in mbrfix.zip to C:\.
3. Open Command Prompt (start->run-> type cmd -> OK).
4. Type cd \ and press enter.
5. Then type mbrfix /drive 0 fixmbr /yes and press enter.
In Safe Mode (Hit F8 repeatedly) run point 5.
to restore your Win MBR.
Obviously Do points 1, and 2,
while you have a working Windows installation.
