My installation of Xp is flaking out. I was going to try the restore feature when u boot from the XP cd to repair an installation. When i select repair it ask you to choose what installation to repair. I choose C because it is the only one that i have, but when asked to put in the admin password it will not accept my admin password. I only have 2 accounts on my installation my admin account i use and a guest account. I am not sure what password it is looking for, and this is keeping me from repairing my XP installation. If you have any ideas please help.

Thanks

Can you boot to Windows Safe mode? You can use its System Restore there.
The admin password is the one that you created during WinXP installation.

it's case sensitive most likely so check your caps lock key
