Thanks for replying guys.
The existing system is DELL Dimension 2400. So I guess its an OEM version of XP?
Does the repair process remove registry entries and make them not
working? I remember like I have to reinstall pretty much all third party software
after I repair the OS installation. I might be wrong.
