    Messed up my partitions...need help


    Hi, in my idiotic and hopeless attempt to fix my pc (winxp and mandrake 10.1) which was filled to the brim with viruses spyware adware trojans and worms...i formatted my hard drime, i toof off all my partitions and installed linux.

    I now realize how dumb of a move that was because i NEED windows. itunes, my lexmark X83 printer, and (photoshop, dreamweaver, flash...)

    i can't figure out linux. it's way too hard and time consuming to make sense for me to spend the time to learn it.

    I'll just suffer with windows until i get my mac

    so how do i get a windows partition again to install my windows xp on it?

    i dont' even want linux anymore

    well easiest way is to boot from windows cd and go from there.
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

    One of the top listings here may be useful to help you past this Windows inherent and deliberate incompatibility with non-MS OSs.
