Windows XP a Goner? First Aid for your Windows PC

Burning The CD Or DVD

Burning is a thoroughly painless matter - there are no settings to adjust.

Despite the displayed message, Nero 6 loads the image via the Burn recorder image menu.

After selecting the ISO file, the Burn dialog box opens.

Click on Burn to copy the ISO file to the disk. We recommend using a DVD+RW or CD-RW for test purposes. A small semicolon in an .inf file is easily forgotten, thus rendering your disk completely useless. Using a rewritable medium is better for both your wallet and the environment.

    Many times booting from xp cd , choosing the repair R option and using chkdsk /r solves the problem

    there is program called winconsole.exe, make a bootable disk from your XP install disk that does all the necessary thing that you need a boot disk to do, great for saving data when you can't get the repair disk to do what you need
  • System (XP SP3 Home Edition) repeatedly failed while trying to boot (blue screen momentarily displayed then it would loop and try to reboot again; I captured blue screen with a camera but it didn't help). Tried to boot from MS XP Home Edition SP2 install disk (note earlier SP version) and was able to go into repair section. Most options didn't work ... but ran CHKDSK and found one or more errors which evidently repaired them. I ran CHKDSK a second time and there were no detected errors. Rebooted the PC and it worked! Thanks!
