When I simply hit Enter at the Prompt, I get thrown into a DOS Prompt C:Windows/
Where do I go from here ????
Depends on what you are trying to fix. Since you didn't tell why you are doing the repair, I can only suggest you do the following from there:
Otherwise reboot and don't select the repair console, but continue on like pete said until it asks you which installation you want to repair. If it doesn't ask you at some point, but wants to format your drive, a repair probably wouldn't work anyway and you may have a failed drive or your Windows install is too corrupt to repair.
