Hello, I am new here and newbie about HDD and OS stuff thats why I am desperately searching for help everywhere and found this forum!Three days ago my OS win XP crashed, I restarted and it showed me message <windows root>\system32\ntoskrnl.exe is missing please reinstall application above (or something like that).I tried to repair through Restore Console, reinstall windows XP, I even tried to format from other partition, I tried to get rid with windows Vista installation disk by formatting, form moment I thought it worked, but then I installed windows Vista on that partition and guess what?Within windows Vista (wich turns out isnt work) there was directory with name Windows.old. I almost fell from my chair.HOW can it be possible?I brutaly terrorized HDD with formatting and installations for days and still I cant get rid of old windows XP.Of course I can give detailed description about everything that I was doing!I hope for some reply at least some laugh...
