    I get the following message when booting

    Interrupted Operation: Insert the recovery cd or other recovery media and reboot your pc...

    And of course, I neglected to create a recovery cd...

    Do you have a way to Identify the active boot partition? Do you have either a XP disk or Windows 7 disk.?

    I am pretty sure this can be repaired . It is just a matter of repairing the boot sector . Explain what you did with the partition majic.

    Tried win7 disk...would not let me choose "upgrade", which might have saved me...
