My winxp install seems to have a lot of problems, like system errors when I use standby, and other weird things that seem to come from use over time. So I decided to format and reinstall windows. I didn't want to lose some of the files I have, so I decided to create a seperate partition and move files I want to keep to it, then format the main partition and reinstall windows on that one. I'm using partition magic, and I try creating a new partition with the wizard, and it tells me it needs to reboot in order to resize the old one. So I click yes, and when it starts up it goes to the boot screen with the blue bar moving from left to right under the windows xp logo, just like normal, but instead of going to the login screen, it just goes to a black screen and does nothing. It will keep doing this every time, until I choose the "last known configuration that worked" option. Then it starts fine, only with no new partition. I'm not sure why this could be. Does anybody have any idea what this could be? Any suggestions would be really helpful. Thanks!
