Hi,

I downloaded  the windows 98 bootfiles from bootdisk.com on a windows xp pro laptop. I was creating a disk for a friend to fix a problem. I created a windows 98 floppy and inserted fdisk/mbr in an autoexec.bat file on the floppy. I left the laptop and the machine rebooted and ran the fdisk/mbr file from the windows 98 floppy.

Windows XP won't start now. Can I fix this without formating and starting over again ?
