    Now that I have gone through a full reformat and everything was working fine, I get a new issue.

    When I reboot I get a black screen after windows XP PRO screen that says Disk Error Press any key to restart. I have tried system restore, repair with XP PRO disc and no change.

    I have a feeling it is some kind of change made it the boot process but what? How do I fix it?
