hi experts
i have a serious problem but i will tell about what happened to my friend and i am afraid that will happen to me.
he has 2 operating system windows xp and linux(mandrake10) he formated windows xp but when he reinstall it again he can not load it.the message "fail loading operatting system"appear to him, he tried everything fdisk,fixmbr,...but no solution.but later he installed windows millinium it worked properly.
so my windows xp is going to die and i want to format it but i am afraid of that problem,i want to install xp in the presence of linux or even without him.
partition c is ntfs, the others is fat32,and u know for liunx it is ext3.
