  1. Boot to your windows disk and select repair.
  2. Are you talking about windows recovery console or repair windows install?
  3. Hi,

    Usually when I get this

    1- try chkdsk c: /f/r to see if it repairs and boot
    2- +1 KnowItAll repair windows with installation disk, but then you need xp sp 3 to do so.
    3- get file corrupted from a working xp and boot with windows ultimate boot cd and replace the files.

    Good luck
  4. Thanks for info. I will give it try.
