Toshiba NB205-N310 - after XP corrupted & NO RECOVEY DVD don

Postby dnmint on Wed Oct 07, 2009 8:50 am

Despite the good advice which I had stored, about creating a recovery DVD first, I goofed.......
I did not create the Restore DVD & have installed Gloria on Toshiba NB205-N310. Luckily the Mint installation is working fine.
I get Grub listing all OSs, I can get Gloria but Win XP does not load.
Can you advise how to do so since I do not have recovery DVD- my own stupidity.
I can view thru Mint my C drive - Toshiba files. Also Recovery partition is intact.
Can anyone help....Will be grateful for help

What exactly do you mean by: "Win XP does not load"? Is it at least in the boot menu? If it is what happens when you select it (exactly)?
Now go into Mint, open a terminal and type the following commands and post the output of each command to this thread:
Code: Select all
df -h
sudo fdisk -l
cat /boot/grub/menu.lst
