Corrupt windows XP file, wont boot XP
Whenever normally when windows loading screen comes up it says that a file is missing or corrupt in like windows/system32/(something/system. I have a dell pc, and my orig OS was xp SP 1, and i got an upgrade cd from windows for SP 2. Now, there is a recovery/repair thing on my SP 1 disk, but i dont know where to go once i get on that recovery disk to repair these files, also when it tells me that file is corrupt or missing it tells me to go to that recovery thing on my windows xp disk. Also, my bro has another little older dell pc, but he used my sp1 disk and sp2 upgrade disk on his, if i cannot get that file through the recovery thing on the sp1 disk, would it be possible to hook up his HDD, boot from it, find the file i need, then replace the corrupt one on my drive with it? I would just reformat the drive and reinstall windows,but i have about 10,000+ songs on that harddrive i do not want to lose.
