    RC1 upgrade failed... roll back failed... help?

    First, let me say that I used the Upgrade Advisor and got rid of everything I
    was told needed to go before Rc1 was attempted. I then tried to do the RC1
    upgrade on my XPsp2 box and it froze up. I left it at about 3/4 done on the
    progress bar for over 36 hours. I finally decided to restart the computer.
    Upon reboot the setup told me it had failed and was going to roll back to xp.
    That also failed and now I get a command box. I have tried all the boot
    options (previous windows verstion - nothing ever happened... rollback -
    nothing, and recovered vista - nothing)

    I know that my XP and docs were backed up during the upgrade process. At
    this point I just want my computer back...

    Does anyone know the steps to make that happen?
