    wipeout my booloader ? I currently have a dual-boot, I dont want to do a full reinstall of XP (thousands of updates)...I want to try and repair and/or reinstall "just" the windows directory/files needed for startup. I am also dealing with the fact that the HD in question is as old as XP so of course their maybe bad blocks on the drive keeping it from booting correctly. My concern is that I dont want to lose the ability to boot my other OS if I try a repair...is that a possiblity ?
