Set your computer to boot first from the CD in bios, put your windows cd in the cd-rom, reboot

Windows set up will start to load.

A minute or two into the process, you will be asked if you want to install windows or repair using the recover console.

CHOOSE REPAIR USING THE RECOVERY CONSOLE

This will take a moment to load

When you enter your password, you will get to a prompt eventually. Type the following command


copy d:\i386\rcp.ex_ c:\windows\system32

This assumes that D: is your cd-rom.

Note: even though it says COPY, you are really expanding a compressed file. COPY from the RECOVERY CONSOLE automatically copies the file

You cannot just copy the file over in windows (assuming it is still running) and rename it. That will not work.

hmm, well, probably. You would have to guard against a couple things, though....most importantly that the file come from the same version of windows xp (rtm, sp1, sp2) as that file was updated at least once.


You could, I suppose, also download the network installation from SP1 or SP2 and extract it from that, too
