On the laptop.

We can install windows on the same partition only a different folder. That will probably eliminate the errors as it will be seen as a fresh install. Then, if the original installation can't be repaired, you can move into the new install. The documents will still be ok doing this.

Ok...back out of the current repair. At the point you're at, I'm not sure whether you press F3 or Esc, but it should say on the screen.

Reboot to the cd and we'll do this one screen by screen together.

At the Welcome to Setup screen, press Enter.

Accept the License Agreement...F8

On the next screen, the fun begins. Press Esc to continue the installation.

Let me know what you see on the next screen...your choice should be the current installation.

Choose the last one, "leave the system of actual archives intact" and press Enter

The next screen should give us the option to choose a different folder. Is that what you get?
