Repair your xp without looseing things

Want to know how?

  • We can repair ur windows XP OS without loosing any setting or data, if u have any missing OS file or any errors, repairing will fix it.
  • Reboot the computer with first boot device as CD-Rom
  • Place the Win XP cd in CD-Rom
  • At the prompt "Press any key to boot from CD" press any key Setup starts
  • Here u also see a Repair option but don't use it
  • Press Enter to continue setup
  • Press F8 to accept License Agreement
  • Now setup will search for previously installed Operating systems, a list will be displayed
  • (Note: if u have windows 98 it wont be displayed in the list)
  • Select the Operating system which ur repairing, like "C:\Microsoft Windows XP Professional"
  • Press 'R' to repair
  • Setup startup copying files and Restarts
    (Note: if the file copying process is not done and the system restarts u have to again follow the same as above by booting from CD-Rom, after file copying is done system restarts
    Now u have to boot from HDD not from CD, At the prompt "Press any key to boot from CD" don't press any key, setup will continue)
  • U need ur CD key
    Warning: If u have downloaded Service Pack 2 and installed it then u have to again download and install it after repair If u have ur Service Pack 2 inbuilt in the XP CD then no need to worry, it will get installed along with Os
