I have my desktop configured with as a triple boot system.

Win 98
Win XP Professional
Win XP Professional

I had everything working fine for quite some time now. I had to do a repair on one of my XP Pro installs. I had previously installed Service Pack 2. I booted from the windows CD, did my repair and everything worked fine.

But I noticed that certain functions and modules that service pack 2 had previously installed left traces behind. The wireless network wizard was still in the control panel but it didn't function. In fact my wireless network wouldn't function at all.

I thought it would be simple. Install SP2 again. I installed it and restarted my computer. Before ever getting to restart, it hung up on the shut down.

I finally had to reset it. On reboot, it will no longer boot into any of my OS's. I cannot boot from the XP CD either. It hangs up when it says, "Windows is starting." I cannot get into the recovery console from the CD and I didn't have it installed on the hard disk drive. Any suggestions?
