OK i messed up I hope someone can help.
OK, heres what i did. I Created new partitions using the install new operating system option of Partition Magic 8.0, out of windows XP. I partitioned my 72 gig SATA drive... like this
50 gigs, to windows, at the beginning, with a 500 mb swap after, and a 12 gig EXT2 for linux after that.
I then installed Mandrake Community 10.1.
When it asked me to specify where the bootloader should go, I assumed it had to go on the first drive, I specified the windows partition, which Mandrake calls SDA1.
I rebooted, Lilo came up
Now when I try to load XP, The system crashes hard. I tried safe mode, it crashes after MUP.sys....
Did i mess up my partition?
Can I save my windows, I dont want to format
