I do, however, have a working laptop that has Win XP HE on it. My question for you all is: Can I create my own "boot disk" or some sort of recovery disk that will let me fix my desktop?
Also, any tips on the c0000218 registry file failure deal?
And finally, if I only restore my registry, will my hard drive files be affected (i.e. will all my stuff be there still)?
Thanks for all your help, and let me know if you need any more information that might help with an answer.
