I've been hit by the now-infamous EVE-Online Trinity upgrade bug.

This has hosed the boot of my games pc.

What is worse, is that though I do have windows XP boot disks that came with the computer, they crash on boot, so I can't run the recovery console to fix the boot.ini file.

I'm now rather stuck for what to do.

I could try a recent knoppix and brave the writable NTFS support, or I could take the hard disk into work and see if I can find a machine with a SATA port that I can plug it into. Neither is particularly appealing as a prospect.

Anyone got any bright ideas (I may just call Dell support, as there is something wrong in that the XP boot disks don't).
