My computer will not load winxp. It will not go into safe mode and a recovery effort didn't work either.
I tried a format and reinstall, but my partition will not delete.
Also tried just to reinstall on the same partition that was alwready there, but received an error "error occurred while updating partition info."

Is my harddrive toast or anything else that I can try.

Did you do FDISK from a win 9x boot floppy to totally destroy the partition and recreate the partition?

If you need a copy of that let me know I can get it to you from my website.

I would try that first and then see unless someone else has any better ideas here.
