PS: READ THE PAGE VERY CAREFULLY!!!!!Click to expand... Now, what I would do (if I didn't want mediadirect around ever again) is delete all the partitions and start over with a fresh partition, format, and re-install of XP. Since the only disk you have is a Dell re-installation disk with SP2 the repair console is pretty much our only option for doing this.
- On systems where the original XP was broken, you can use the new installation to back up files and sometimes to repair the original.It can be useful to use the program
- Are you looking for the solution to your computer problem?
- It was running smoothly until I add another HD-B also had XPpro in it as a second drive.
- How can I modify laptop fan speed?
- If you have data on D: you want to keep then you would have to retrieve that first because it would be wiped out.
- Anyway, Got to the recoevry console, started the intructions Typed in Ren hal.dll halold.dll - no error Typed in Copy ntoskrnl.exe ntoskrnl.old - The system cannot find the file specified Typed
- unfortunately i havent backup my data for a long time and am afraid of losing my files.
- Do you have an XP CD?
Shoot I was hoping that the disk you made from Outcastes instruction would automatically copy the files for you so it wouldn't be so darn difficult. i have dropped it off to a computer spec in my area. shinybeast, Oct 17, 2008 #13 BERRY2006 Thread Starter Joined: Oct 16, 2008 Messages: 7 ok.

Later places-computer-media and here you are.... This error many be caused by a corrupt file system, which would prevent Bootcfg from successfully scanning. This is also good in a sense as you do have a copy of your files.

phijoa16-03-2009, 10:40 AMThanks Blam & Wainuitech 'Attrib -H -R -S C:\Boot.ini' didn't work because it wouldn't recognise the parameters. No, create an account now.
