Are you dual booting?

What version of Windows? Most of us on this forum have 2 balls, neither of which are crystal..

Sorry been trying to get that in for weeks.

Does the Xp console not give an option for system restore?.
If the Logo app made a back up of the Boot file you should be able to rename it via a dos prompt. I'm not to sharp on that but hopefully someone will come up with the commands for you.

Failing that, its the big reformat.

Good luck

Have you tried any other of the repair options from the XP disk.
