Hi
On my PC if things go drastically wrong and i have need to do a recovery all i have to do is reboot and press F11 as it boots. This starts the recovery of my system which is windows 98 SE.
I am using winXP pro. at the moment so if things went wrong how can i change the recovery so that it reloads XP instead of the original 98SE.
Thanks

I assume your PC has a copy of the system files on a hidden partition (HP or Compaq?)

You cant easily do that for a reloaded system. Best to look at using Nortons Ghost 2003 or similar to do a complete drive image, and store on a set of CDs.
