Can anyone help me - it seem that my xp cd is now missing files?
The CD is not going to go missing any 'burned in' original files. I would run the repair installation and bypass any files that didn't load. The system could be showing some hardware that don not match with the drivers available on the XP installation CD. Try and skip them and go ahead with the repair installation. A repair nstallation bring the OS back to the point of the installation CD. If that does not solve the problem, perhaps a clean freh installation of the operating system is needed. Be sure to save important personal files to disk or removable drive.http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/helpandsupport/learnmore/tips/doug92.mspx
