    problem caused by deleted linux


    My computer had Linux and Windows Xp . I deleted Linux last week for I want to rearrange the partition size for it. I deleted it in Windows and formated the partition, also have been writing data on that. Now I can boot from any operating system, even windows. when I boot from disk , I get three lines of '99' on the screen. The problem is that I did not do any back up of my data. Could anyone tell me how to save my data from the booting crash!!

    thanks in advance.

    To restore your Windows bootloader, boot from your Windows XP install disk, enter the recovery console, and use the
    Code:
    fixmbr
    command.
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    To add to what Flatline said, you can enter the Recovery Console by hitting R when the screen tells you there's already a version of MS Windows installed.
