Default Repair

I have always wondered how do you repair a partition of windows xp. I can never get it to work, I can get it to the screen that looks like DOS but I don't know what to type in. I don't need this right now it has just always bothered me.

To do a repair install you boot from the XP CD. From there it will load the setup. After the setup it will give you a few options. Install, Recovery Console or something else. Choose to install XP.

I know this sounds odd but it is okay. It will show the EULA. Hit F8 to accept. There is will search for Windows installations. It should find you current install. Then it will give you more options.

You can choose to install XP again, Repair or exit. This is where you choose the repair. From there it will delete the XP files and then go thru the process of installing them again.
