    I believe i was attacked with a virus that messed up my OS booting. The Blue screen pops instantly after the attack. I restarted and the Blue Screen pops up again. I tried to load it with the settings that worked and the blue screen came up once again. I tried safe mode as well and still no change, same blue screen. As usual I thought a reformat would do the trick.I booted with my winxp cd and wanted to reinstall a fresh copy and i saw

    Unknown Disk
    (there is no disk in the drive)

    Unknown Disk
    (there is no disk in the drive)

    I restarted the comp and rebooted with the cd and i ran the Repair Console
    I typed in fixmbr to fix the issue. But the same Unknown Disk was still there when i tried to reinstall again. I did a chkdsk with Repair Console and the ' The Volume appears to contain one or more unrecoverable problems' msg appears.

    I'm lost with what to do now
