Installing XP back
A few months back i installed Vista Business on my system, now I want to
install XP back on my system. I have done a Format and i believe i deleted
the Windows.old Folder. When i finished installing XP, and once it boots up,
it says Error loading Operating System. How do i succesfully install XP back?

Re: Installing XP back
I ran the XP set-up CD. I deleted the partition. I formmatted the partition.
and i installed XP in it. After all is done, it still says ERROR LOADING
OPERATING SYSTEM. Why is that? How do i successfuly install XP?

Bare in mind that my PC came with XP on it, then i installed Vista business,
now i want to install XP again and it simply gives me that error message all
the time.

Bare also in mind that because i done the format i dont have any Operating
System i can work on so unless i overcome that little problem, i believe
everything you tell me to do have to be done off a CD/DVD or through command
line.

Hope to hear from you soon Peter

Many Thanks,

Yuri
