trying to save myself a little time here offering you solutions you have already tried...since you have tried everything, we can save a ton of time by me not saying
me: do this
you: did that already
me: ok, do this
you: did that too
see my point? Or did "doing everything" basically mean turned the machine on twenty times and kicked the cat?

I cannot get to the repair function. When I put in the operating restore disc, it starts to load all the drivers as a normal boot. Then it tries to load windows without giving me a repair feature.

Go kick the cat....no just kidding. So, you didn't really try everything...That's fine. I just needed to know
Go here and download this:
Go here and get the ISO powertoy that is appropriate for the PC you are posting from now (hopefully XP):
Install the second, reboot, then right click the first and choose COPY IMAGE TO CD with a blank CD in the cd-burner
Then, come back in a half hour--I am going to dinner right now....will catch you on the flip side if no one else chimes in

Hope you had a nice dinner...thanks again!

Set the computer to boot to the cd-rom as the first boot device in bios (this is done by pressing f1, f2, or del, usually and looking for BOOT ORDER) then drop the cd-rom and reboot
The CD you burned is a self-contained recovery console. It will load until it takes you to a prompt asking you to select a windows install (just type 1), then it will prompt for a password for the admininstrator account if you have xp pro, or if it is xp home, leave it blank
c:\windows> prompt, type
(assuming D is your CD-rom
copy d:\i386\ntfs.sys c:\windows\system32\drivers\ntfs.sys
Should get a message 1 file copied
Remove CD and reboot as normal

then i tried to just type
just to see if this was indeed the cd-rom drive and it said file could not be copied.
Can you help me?
