Recovery in xp...IMPORTANT



Ive got a big problem in xp,im missing a sysytem file and i cant boot up the system. My problem is,how can i use rapair in xp,when i use that option notting happens. Any suggestions????

Dont want to format drive c,so please post any suggestions you may have.
can you boot via last good known boot? (press f8 on bootup)
or safemode?
well my experience with Repair is not a very good one. I managed to somehow delete something in Device Manager, and it would not start windows. So I popped in the Windows XP CD, and asked it to Repair. Repair all done. I restart, wow, i am amazed, all my files are here!

But wait, my page file is gone! and i couldn't seem to set it or do anything else (no pagefile). I eventually reinstalled windows XP.

I've had the same experiance as you with repair
with me... if i cant get into safemode or last good known bootup thing... then i install 2k or xp on another partition, backup data and format
much cleaner method

Press F8 on start up (after IDE check)... whole list of options there which might help

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
