Re: windows and mandrake problem!!!!
Well you could install the windoze hd in another xp pc as the secondary hd. Then once it has booted go to disk management & activate the 2nd hd & give it a drive letter. You then should be able to browse. Or you could boot the xp hd from a floppy & check whether you can browse via dos. Or you could boot your xp hd with a xp boot disc then type . Then reboot. Im quite sure that you have not lost your data because you removed the Linux drive...
