Stop 0x7B baby, yeah...
Something is tickling the back of my mind me about a parition size limit for the boot partition in XP SP1.
So, in order to get this done right, I have to hope that somewhere in my Pile Of Disaster I have a copy of my partitionmagic boot cd, so I can shrink the partition down to size....
That is assuming that that is the reason it's not booting after the initial installation copying-to-disk sequence.
I hate teh BSODs--even when I can track down the reasons for them and address them--which is 99.9%--it just sucks my life energy every time I have to do it...I may just install FreeBSD or Linux on my PS3.
I'm going to turn on and plug in my recovery disk from SalvageData, just so I can at least see my files.
I've missed them.
