Default !!!i Need Help!!!! System Problem!!!!

sponsored links

It all started when I upgraded my other pc. I needed to format its hard drive because XP wouldnt load because of the new motherboard and cpu. So I attacted the hard disk to my dads pc to copy some files over. BIG Mistake because it somehow made both my computers think that win 98 was installed (dont ask me how because both pcs had XP on them).

When the computer trys to boot I get a win98 boot screen: safe mode, normal, command promp etc and it also says the regestry is corrupt and to run scan disk. I try to load "normal" and it can't find the "" file so i cant run scan disk.

I can't format the computer because it has all my dads files on it mp3s etc so what i did was format MY hard drive and install XP again thinking that I could copy the files over, but XP won't allow me access the drive and says the drive is not formated, and would I like to format it now. I dont want to do that incase loose all te file (i think)

Idealy I'd like to somehow restore my Dads computer so XP boots and his files are still there otherwise I'd like to be able to copy files from one drive to another so I can then format and start over.

Thanks for any help
