I was running WindowsXP and it crashed, couldn't anything.
I tried to re install it after i formated the hard drive and it stoped installing and told me that the hard drive was corrupted. I tried a full scan disk from dos and nothing came up as to any problems. i tried to install it again and got the same msg. I am runnig Windows ME right now without any problems but want to go back to XP without replacing the hard drive.

I'm lost on this one
Please help me.
Thanks
