MY pc has xp home edition sp2. I tried to merge two partitions on the same hard drive using partition magic and after the process i get blank screen wtih a blinking cursor. Nothing seemed to work. I can not access safe mode or last known configuration options. i ran all the tests and every thing in the system is fine. I ran windows recovery and that didn't do any help. I tried all the possible ways but i can't seem to get a hint if the os is still in there or gone. When i try to run recovery through windows cd, it shows xp home edition when it asks to choose the os to repair. Does that mean my os is still in there and i can retrieve my data? any help would be appreciated.
