Is your computer unable to load Windows XP operating system? Are you experiencing errors while booting your system? If 'Yes', you cannot log into your Windows XP computer and all your valuable data becomes inaccessible. Such situations may lead to loss of your critical data , and you need to restore your data from the most recent backup.

“Error loading operating system”

After this issue, Windows cannot boot up and prevents you to access your computer hard drive and stored data.

This behavior may occur if any of the below conditions is true:
The BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) of your Windows computer's doesn't support or properly manage the storage capacity of your hard drive.
The hard drive isn't correctly setup in the computer CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor).
The hard drive partitions are either damaged or missing.
