The setup program detected two instances of Windows XP/200 already installed and added them to Grub's boot menu. Booting the first one resulted in HP's Recovery Program. 
The second one was the actual Windows Partition, but it did not boot. It turns out that the partitioning program screwed up the first partition, (FDISK ERROR: Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary).
I could no longer boot into the Second Partition (windows)
