80GB Hard Drive (Partitioned into 40GB Leopard Drive and 40GB Windows XP Drive)



I recently installed iAktos v1.0i on my laptop. I prefered Windows XP and really needed the extra disk space, so I booted into Windows XP and formatted the Leopard partition back to Windows, which of course wiped all of the data on it.


Then I restarted my computer and it will not boot, showing "MBR Error 1 Press any key to boot from floppy"


Then I press any key


"MBR Error 2 Press any key to boot from floppy"


I press any key again and the same message is displayed.


I think my computer is trying to boot from the Leopard partition instead of the Windows XP one. I have tried going into system BIOS and changing the boot order but this has not worked. And of course, I have no access to the Darwin Bootloader because it was on the Leopard partition.


How can I fix this? Thank you in advance!
