    Hey folks I have a hd with wonn xp home on it and when I go to boot it bsod's on me and then reboots b4 I can read the screen...; as in immediately.. I put a secon copy of windows on a partition on the drive but I have a ton of software on the other partition that I dont want to lose and some I cant... I have taken ownership of the folders in the other partion to get my pictures and the like. But I cant use any of my programs .... I assume cause there are no registry entries in the new copy of windows.... does any one know the boot order of windows files so I can try to replace them 1 at a time to find out wich one of mine is corrupted... or if anyone has any other ideas?
