Dear colleauge:

Thanx for the fast reply, I will try to read the site u give me



I have tried to follow the steps that u have forwarded last Friday, but the window installation couldn’t give me an option of repairing the system (“R). It shows me the available drives and provide me an option to partition, delete partition and quite only, NO repair.

After restarted the Pc with out the XP CD in it, It gives me a new message “Primary Hard Disk drive 0 failure Strike the F1 key to continue, F2 to run the setup utility

I don’t know where to go from here.



Looks to me like you have damaged partition on your HD. There isn't much you can do except delete the partition, create new one and install the windows.

If the HD is to blame (hardware faliure) it will eventualy happend again, possibly HD will die for good.
