Can't you format and reinstall again? Just boot off XP, use the boot menu. Refer to your mobo manual for the boot menu.

I'm assuming this is a new build. When the computer boots up, press f8 or f10 and a boot menu comes up. Select CD drive and proceed to do an install.

well i had already installed xp previously,was installing again cuz it started running slow. it says f10 is the recovery menu and i press it and i cant get to the boot menu, same with other f keys.

ok so once i turn it on all i can do is go to bios or it goes to the error. i cant get into windows.


F1 and F11 are the only keys that work and they both only get me into the bios

When you boot off CD, does it say Hit a key to continue?

Is your XP disc a full version or the recovery CD?

you killed the f10 option when you reformatted the hard drive. try putting a powermax cd in your drive. it will automatically boot
