Re-install windows. That's your option.

well to get around this i think you have to hit the f8 key to get to the start menu, then choose last good config. that worked....it should now boot for you.

that would be a last resort, he only has to go back and edit the boot.ini

no that doesnt work either. No boot options work. That is the problem. Would boot disks do the trick? All I want to do is get my files back.

you can do this, but it will erase all data on your hhd...

well i thought that you used a different boot skin, and it did'nt configure the boot.ini file right, there for making the comp. un-bootable.since this is not the case

can you get into bios, and see if the hhd is detected & active.if it is not active, then make it active.also if the partition in bios has ???? marks in the name, then it was not properly formatted.
