Can't Access Windows Partition [URGENT]
Hey, in another attempt to install linux on my computer, I've managed to botch things up pretty bad.
Using Partition Magic, I created a new partition for linux and then rebooted and attempted to install Gentoo. However, my installation CD did not work, and i get an error message saying there was a problem with my OS. Now I can no longer boot up my original Windows partition. (AAAHHH!!!!)
I deleted the linux partition and installed WinXp on it, in the hope that I could access my old files, but its not letting me. Now i have almost 30GB of data that I can't get to. Is there anyway I can get my computer to start from the other partition with all my old files and settings?
I know this is not necessarily Linux related, but any help would be greatly appreciated. Also, if im committed some forum faux paux with this post I apologize; things are a bit hectic right now.
