i accidenteally loaded xp and cant undo it(4 posts)
What were you actually trying to do? If you went through the XP install process by booting from the disk, then at some point you would have seen a message about 'formatting' and what sort of format you wanted to do. If you chose this option then you will have removed the Windows 7 installation and replaced it with XP. For all intents and purposes it will have gone. However, if you tried running the disk from within Windows, or used a boot manager programs to try & run a dual boot system then your Win7 installation is still there, you just need to repair the boot files, but you need to give more information on what you actually did.
thanks for responding, i was looking through my original stuff that came with my laptop i saw the original installation cd, i had already upgraded to windows 7 a while back, though i kept getting a message about an error with my windows security, without thinking i put the disc in the drive and was not paying attention when i realized i had just reinstalled xp
