|If you are seeing the windows logon screen, then your hard drive is being read. Try going into your BIOS and making sure that your hard drive is recognized and all is well. Make sure there is no disk in your CD drive (floppy too). |
Do you have an XP install disk, a recovery disk, or just a recovery partition? If you have a disk, you can try booting to that (set CD drive first in boot order) and recover (you can borrow equivalent one to the XP edition you have), and invoke recovery from there.
