I installed Win XP on a brand new hard drive. Installed partition magic. Made a partition for the OS and Programs, and one for my data.
After installing all my programs I realised I didnt create a parition big enough for them...and so was running out of space. Partition magic would not let me expand the partition...( I want ALL OS and programs on one partition) failing to do that I created another partition and tried to merge the two.
I applied the changes to my hard drive...and now when it starts up, XP wont boot. I just get a black screen with a flashing cursor.
Is it possible the computer is trying to boot up an OS in the wrong location?
