    Help freaking out here, I put win xp on my win 7 desktop was trying to dual boot. I created a partition as i wanted to dual boot. Named F approx 45GB, when i booted up of XP disc i seen C/ F kind of path to install, so when ahead hit enter. Now i booted into XP and cannot see 7 from a list to pick when booting up. There is a drive D in the my computer area with 180GB full is that my win 7 stuffo_O. How do i get win 7 back how it was, I have Win 7 dvd but don't want to stuff it up more..o_O i dont care if XP is gone, just want it back... thanks

    Under computer managment, in XP i see D partition NTFS healthy 180GB / 89GB free
    "" "" F (C.) partition NTFS healthy 42.67GB 39.25GB Free

    God knows where i installed XPo_O I thought it was F partition i created. I assume 7 is in D there... what would happen if i right click mark D as active?, i will await for some help

    OMG i fixed it marked it as active NVM cheers :))))))))))))))))))))) happy

    I think during start up screen now black area, it says boot from cd sure that wasn't there before. Also in F drive that one i created , has folders windows, documents settings i think that maybe XP stuff. When i try to formatt that drive,in there says the drive is in use etc...worried i might stuff it up again.
