Question about Computers & Internet
Did you use the Advent's built-in reformat and rebuild to get it back to XP Pro?
If you have a separate XP Pro CD or DVD, as opposed to that in a 'hidden' partition on the HD, your best best, so long as you have the installation key, is to start fresh with formatting the HD and, if it is large enough, splitting the HD into two partitions.
Then use one of them for the actual XP Pro partition. Build that first partition into XP Pro, and when it is working properly, only then do you format the second partition, and make it into the kind of space you need it to be.
You should have the ability to make it work now. So long as you have a legitimate installation key for XP Pro, you should be able to make this work properly.
