    Default Dual Boot Failure

    We'll i was attempting to dual boot windows xp and BT3 with no luck, now I am unable to boot to my C: Drive, which is where windows is located, I think all i need to do is fix the Master Boot Record, i just don't know how. Any help would be great as the only way to access the computer is through my BT USB.

    Thanks a lot!
    I ended up using a BackTrack2 Disk which is alright, I can access my Windows and Dual Boot to access BackTrack.
    But now my problem is, Backtrack2 isn't what i want, which i dont mind if my resolution could change to 1280x800 otherwise it looks bad and is hard to use stretched out. BT3 never had that resolution problem. Anyone know how to change this in BT2?

    Might have been a bit of miscommunication there.

    You can use the links provided with bt2 or 3 beta it should work the same.
