I couldn't boot any of my windows installations normally anymore (Windows 7 and XP pro) so I downloaded a suite of bootable tools called "Hiren's boot cd" and made it usb bootable... I used a tool in the suite to boot my unbootable Windows XP (the one wich is infected by the master boot record virus).. After that, I made a new partition on my hard drive using EASEUS partition master and then I installed Windows XP on the new partition. Everything works fine now, but I can't find a way to boot my old installation of XP (the infected one)... For some reason, I can't get it listed in the "OS choice menu" upon booting... I think my computer is using a wrong boot.ini file located on another partition because the operating system listed in the OS choice menu doesn't fit the boot.ini file I from my D: drive (the new XP partition). I've been trying to fix this for almost a month without success.
At least now I have a working, fast computer with my iTunes library now!
Sorry for my english!
Current system setup: Dell Inspiron Mini 1012 (Alpine White), 2GB ram, 56Wht 6 Cells battery, stock screen, dual booted Windows XP Pro & Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit.
