You should have kept two copies of all your data - - one copy on the Dell hard drive and another copy on a completely separate hard drive (external).

Try partition recovery software or file recovery software:

PM 8 may also have a method to undo what was done. You may want to check their help files.

You may also be able to perform a WinXP repair install.

You learned a couple of valuable lessons:

1. always have more than one backup of important files
2. NEVER perform an important operation such as repartitioning or a BIOS flash when using battery power
