hi, tried repair of xp home twice. Repair initiates reboot which kept
running as a loop. Tried repair again & same thing
Any suggestions how & why & also how can it be fixed.

If I choose a full xp install without formatting hard drive or uninstalling
the original, would I lose my original music / photos / documents folders?
Does it archive them, delete them or overwrite them?

So many questions, so many problems!

Try booting to xp cd,select install xp,new copy,delete the partition,create
one,then xp formats the hd and installs.Installing w/o the format usually
will not work,and is a waste of time.Try running the file transfer wizard,set
computer as old,put data in a new folder you create,then when its thru,move
folder to cd.After new xp installation is thru,youre settings will be
reconfigured
from the wizard.Yes you'll loose all data for all users when xp formats.
