    I think you've lost XP if you used the entire disk.

    "Entire disk" means exactly what it says, I'm afraid; a disk is a disk, not a partition as M$ would sometimes have us believe, with their C and D disks etc etc.

    You may get something back with testdisk, but I hope you have backups of important data, as much of it could be lost.
