I'm trying to repair a PC
It's a Pentium 4 and I believe that it has a Windows XP
the PC is trying to boot, i can see the Boot Progress Bar(Those 'lil white rectangles)
and then i get
“Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
"repair the file with a windows setup CD-ROM....and repair"
I booted with a Windows XP installation CD and
I wanted to run a repair installation of Windows XP but made the mistake and typed "R" so I went to the recovery console
But I didn't have any option to choose which Windows installation I want to log ontoDo you think a repair installation will be an easier method to fix it, or I have to go to the recovery console and follow this guide ?
Also I'm not sure what Windows XP and what Service Pack are installed
Should I get a Windows XP Pro SP3 cd?
