Post is confusing concerning references to a XP boot disk - you can hav
XP
boot disk (floppy) - are you really referring to the XP CD? You ma
be
omitting important facts. Regarding "Caldera(Dr.Dos)" - primary use
of
this version DOS is Partition Magic and is provided to run Partitio
Magic
from DOS when Windows will not boot. There are usually two floppies
one
with Caldera DOS and another with the DOS version of Partition Magic.
Also
you state you have no floppy drive but Caldera DOS is booting to th
"A"
drive - indicating it found an "A" drive??
Do you have a Partition Magic CD and using it rather than your XP CD
When
you were having problems "a.go system file"
did you or someone else used a HD utility?

It is impossible for my pc to find an A drive as there's not on
connected to my pc in any shape or fashion, AT ALL! When I speak of m
XP boot disk I am refering to my retail CD-ROM Disk (as in CD). I d
not have any of the two floppies that you speak of

At the end of my post I asked "did you or someone else use a HD utility?"
In your next to last post you wrote "... I
let a friend of mine configure my hard drive setup for me." Refer to my
previous comments about Partition Magic - exactly how did your friend
configure your hard drive? e.g. Did he use Partition Magic? In configuring
the HD, did all "steps" initiate and/or complete successfully?
