Hello guyz ....
i was using windows xp from atleast 3 years .....
but about 3-4months ago my pc detected a virus ......
Firstly i couldn't fix it n i thought of re installing the windows.....
but it gave me BSOD.........
somehow i fixed the virus in safe mode....
and started using windos.......
but now about a week ago my windows got corrupted and started booting on windows logo loading screen........
so i thought of re installing the windows but it still gave that BSOD..........
screen remains there and nothing happens ......
i have to restart the pc........
But some how i fixed BSOD changing RAID TO SATA in on board devices in BIOS ...... [in mean time i was using ubuntu]......
So now that i solved the problem of BSOD [Blue screen of death] i tried to install win xp but after partition and istalling in blue screen dos like mode [when windows is half installed and pc reboots in 15 sec.s] after rebooting i got a message of ''INVALID PARTITION TABLE''.....
Still [ not loosing the hope ] checked out the threads and used PARTED MAGIC nTEST DISK
............ https://www.techsupportforum.com/foru...le-272695.html ..............
now on boot screen i get a message"PLEASE SELECT A PROPER BOOT DEVICE".........
Main problem ....now earlier when my pc was alright ...i had 4 partitions c,d,e&f...c for windows .........after solvig BSOD
i tried to install win xp in c but it said that it was not win xp compatible........so i partitioned ''c'' in to 2 drives then i could istall win xp in any of them upto invalid partition message..........
now after the events of parted MagIc i cann't even install windows in ''c'' even after partitioning it into 2 or 3 drives.........
my HDD IS 80 GB c,d,e & f each 20gb ....
Ps. My d,e,f drives are full don't wanna lose their data..........

Please help me this is ma last hope.......

Back up all your data to a different drive, delete all your partitions, wipe & format the drive and start all over.

My System

Boot off of the XP CD Or download the Recovery Console ISO. Burn it to CD with IMGBurn and get to the Recovery Console. Here type chkdsk /R and press enter. The Check Disk utility will try and fix any file errors.
