If there is no menu option for Default or Fail Safe Default, try pressing F5 and save your settings.

Yah I'm the one with the CD he'll be using. It is XP Pro. Will it still work? I think it should because most of the things are the same, but then again you are the Expert!

We can probably use the Pro version to get to Recovery Console, but we won't be able to use it for a repair installation. It will be seen as an upgrade and install the XP Pro...this would not be good in terms of validation.

See if you can boot to the cd and press R at the first option screen to enter Recovery Console. Let me know what you see on the screen by way of partitions or operating systems.

Okay I pressed R on the first option screen but It obviously said "Windows XP Professional Setup" in the top left corner. I am now in the recovery console, it says:

Microsoft Windows XP™ Recovery Console.

The Recovery Console provides system repair and recovery functionality.

Type EXIT to quit the Recovery Console and restart the computer.

Whoo so I typed in CHKDSK, it finished. I typed EXIT and it rebooted, I booted it normally and I was able to log in! Everything seems to be working fine. Is there any steps I should take to actually make SURE that it is in fact working? and so that this doesn't happen again.

Click Start, then Run, type eventvwr.msc and click "Ok".

In the Event Viewer's left pane, click on "System". In the right pane, make note of any errors and list a couple of the most recent here for me.

There haven't been any recent errors since 12/4/2006. The source is MrxSmb.
