My computer got too slow because my windows corrupted with viruses and spywares. Anyways, my HDD is partitioned 40GB and 200GB. I deleted the 40GB partition where the OS was installed than formatted and installed XP again.<br />
<br />
Fisrt boot made it to new OS than i installed the mobo drivers and restarted it than guess what happened... The old OS boot up... I am so lost. <br />
<br />
How could this happen ?<br />
<br />
Thank you !

Did you reformat it after you deleted it?

</div>I deleted the partition than re-created it and it formatted and i installed windows xp.<br />

Other weird thing is, when it booted to new OS first time, i checked the partition size and it was 3.2GB, where is the old OS hiding ? :/

Data Life Guard, a HDD utility for WD HDDs. A link to it in my FAQ.
