i dont think the bios is mess up. because it boots too the windows cdrom fine. i just want too get my windows back and my games if i can.

 

should i pop it in my main pc as a slave and try changeing the cluster size again?

The cmos tells it how to boot. Booting from the cd bypasses the cmos. Only take a few minutes to clear it and see.

 

Next step would be to run the repair option on the XP cd.

Ok. Go HERE and grab the ME OEM file. Put in a formatted floppy and open the file. Follow instructions to load it to floppy.

 

Take the floppy to the dead pc, and boot. At the a prompt, type fdisk /mbr

 

That should fix the master file is corupted error.

Try doing a repair install first. If that doesn't work, you can also try taking the hard drive out, put it in another computer and see if you can at least save the stuff you want to save before reformatting.
