I've post something earlier this morning concerning my failed HD. Anyway, I've lost everything on my 80GIG HD and now i earsed it and did a clean software restore. The only problem is that i can't seem to get to the desktop. There's just a blue screen and a cursor. I've tried to fix the HD with Norton and everything but nothing will help. Am I missing some steps or something? Also, I've restored software on a different partition and it's doing the same thing. The only bootable partion is a 10 GIG partition i made a while back. I need help fast. I have a media project i need to finish by this weekend...so, if anyone has any suggestions...thanx a lot.
