can u tell me what i need to do to get my boot manager back.. thanks.
Try inserting the below or adding it to your existing one.

Goto 'my computer' > 'properties' > 'advanced' > 'startup and recovery' > 'edit (boot.ini)'

Or just get it in eXPlorer

[Operating Systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect
D:\="Windows Operating System on D:"
just go to a cmd line in xp and type bootcfg/fix and it will fix the nt bootloader...or type bootcfg/? to see your options...hope this helps.
i tried it and when i selected the OS on boot up, it would automatically reboot my computer

oh well, i'll format the drive

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
