    I messed up my partitions trying to install linux and put the /swap partition before the windows partition. Now it can't boot any operating system "Operating System Not Found".

    Is there any way to put something to repartition the drives using a boot cd? :sadwavey:

    Get your hands on a Linux LiveCD (Ubuntu or Knoppix), boot from CDROM, repartition.

    You could also try using a windows boot disk and doing:

    fdisk /mbr
