I have a very loving old Laptop Compaq 2210b. It came with Windows Vista installed and I didnt like Vista a lot so I got my dealer change the OS to XP. I was happy with the laptop and XP when suddenly I saw that I cannot go into safemode to run a virus check which I usually do. after listening to a concerned friend who sugested that i change the boot oftion to safemode, I did something i dont remember(something related to the Boot.ini file i think) which kind of finished the whole issue. My PC wont go into safemode and I had changed the boot option to safemode.
Now another friend has re-installed XP on another drive on my PC. The result is now i can start my PC. Can somebody suggest a way to fix the previous problem from the new OS installed.


Thanking in advance

You can format the drive that your friend installed in the other drive then try to repair the main installation with a windows CD.

Here is a FAQ on how to repair Windows XP:

Let me know if you encounter any other problem.
