So I have a dell inspiron 1720 laptop and I have gotten rid of vista. I have been using tiny xp and just recently decided to reformat after a virus bomb. I was going to particion my drive space so the OS would be in it's own part just in case it happened again I wouldn't have to lose some info. In the middle of the reformatting it lost power. When I try and start up the comp again it gives the error loading operating system message, and when I try to boot from the disk it gives the same message. So I can't continue formatting. I'm doing a diagnostics test right now to see what errors it gives. Is there anything anybody could think of to fix it? Any advice is much appreciated. Thanks.
