Try this

by Jacky Howe In reply to Norton GoBack

Insert your XP CD and when you see ?Press any key to boot from CD? press a key. Now wait for the XP installer to finish loading up and you will be presented with the option to press R to Repair.
<br><br>
Press R.
The next screen will ask you which Windows? installation you would like to log on to. Normally the following will be listed:
<br><br>
1: C:\WINDOWS
<br><br>
Press 1, then Enter to continue.
<br><br>
You may now be asked for the Administrator password. If you know this type it and press Enter. If you don't know the Administrators password it may be blank. Just press Enter or type your username and password.
<br><br>
At the command prompt type:
<br><br>
fixmbr and press Enter
<br><br>
fixboot and press Enter
<br><br>
Wait until you are returned to the Recovery Console.
<br>
Once you are back to the Recovery Console remove the XP CD and restart your PC.

U can try boot with the boot disk and try fdisk /mbr. This will fix your Master Boot Record.

If the space bar access doesn't work

by IC-IT In reply to Norton GoBack

Then you can use a partition editor to change the boot partition from a hex 44 back to a 07. (Partition magic - ptedit.exe; acronis - disk editor; gparted, etc).

Try tapping your space bar just as the system boots, this may give you access to the goback boot manager. You can then turn it off.
