Default Windows XP SP1, vgaoem.fon startup error

Hi,

Topic title shows the name of file damaged/corrupted. I have run Recovery Console(RC), and the set command, which i need to enable the "allowallpaths = true" command, is disabled.


I've read that the only way to enable the set command is to do some configurations in my Group policy RC section. However, I cannot enter windows now.

Does that mean i have to reformat my computer? Just because I have to enter Windows to enable the set command?

Also, what could have caused the corruption of the vgaoem.fon file? Virus?

Eagerly waiting for a response and help,
Thank you.

Hello, yes I've done that up to Step 8, where it say,

"Type the following line, and then press ENTER (where CD-ROM drive is the letter of the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive that contains the Windows XP compact disc, and drive is the letter of the drive on which Windows is installed):
expand CD-ROM drive:\i386\vgaoem.fo_ drive:\windows\system"

The thing is, to enable the mentioned command, I must set the allowallpaths = TRUE command first. However the set command to actually enable it is disabled, and can only be accessed in Group Policy in Windows, which I can't go in now!

Any solutions?

Thank you.

Might have to try and do a repair install.
