When I do a "sfc /scannow", windows prompts that I insert the Windows XP Pro
CD. I have the Home Edition installed on my pc. It also says that some dll
files need to be copied to my dll cache. I looked in the windows folder and
I don't think I have a dll cache.

I've noticed this prompt when the i386 folder in the hard disk have been
deleted (or not present). The SFC dialog will prompt you insert the XP
Professional CD though you may have XP Home installed. Just ignore the
dialog and insert your XP Home CD and complete the process.

OTOH, if you have a OEM Restore CD (ex..Compaq, DELL PCs), nothing much can
be done to selectively restore the core system files.

I do have the XP upgrade. Is that good enough? By the way, thank for
replying.

Yes, that should be sufficient.
