Can't Boot Into Partition!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I am really frustrated right now, and I was hoping someone could help.

+Rep for help.

Ok, so heres the lowdown.
I decided to make a seperate windows partition for things like 3Ds Max, VS2005, Etc. I had partition magic(with bootmagic) so I decided to go about making a new install. Well, all I can say is that it won't recognize my main partition at all. I can boot into my new partition fine, and I can even access the files on the old one, but I really really want to get back into the other partition. I took a bunch of screenshots to try to help you help me. Oh, and I reformatted a linux partition to use for windows.

Ok, the first is of my system information screen, probably won't help, but hey, you never know.


The next screeny I took was in the system>advanced>startup and recovery>settings. This shows what settings windows has for my startup.


Next, I took a picture in partition magic. C:\\ is my secondary partition, G:\\ is my primary.


This next one is in my computer, it doesn't show G:\\, but it normally does.


This one is in msconfig's boot settings. Again, probably not the most useful.


Boot Magic:


And lastly, the text file containing bootloader parameters.


Random Facts:
Using XP Home SP1 as secondary
Using XP MCE SP2 as primary


Ok, so now that I have showed you that, I'll give you a progress report of what I have tried. First off, I know it is not a hardware problem, because I got a successful install(and I have installed 3 times now!). I have tried quite a few things. Such as modifying the boot file, messing with bootmagic, and setting G:\\ to the active partition(which resulted in an "NTLDR Please CTRL+ALT+DELETE TO RESTART" error)

I am quite discouraged, as I had 60 Gigs of data on that partition, and I wish to get it back. Thank you for any help you can provide.

And remember, +Rep for help!
