I exposed MiniNT as the default operating system. XP wont start

2009-01-04, 15:10 PM

I have a thinkPad T61 that I now updated with SP3 but I managed to mess up my partitions and more specifically the bootup partition. I am not sure what I did but when my PC boots up I now go directly into Rescue and Recovery.


I tried to start up the PC with my XP install CD and went for R (Recovery). Somehow these are the repair options


1: c:\MiniNT

2: d\Windows 


Clearly I have exposed the  c\MiniNT as the default operating system and that is why I now boot up in ThinkVantage Rescue and Recovery.


I would really appreciate if somebody has some hints on how to fix this 


Thanks you
