Hey:
I recently scheduled a C scandisk, but entered esc before it finished.
it now shows up a screen that appears with a message that says
a malfunction occured and shows me several options to boot,
but it will only return back to this page and will not enter the operating system.

Thanks for your help!

This topic should be posted in the xp forum but I will try to help.
You will need your xp disk for this.

Follow these steps
(1) Place your xp cd in the rom drive and boot up. You should see this message :-
PRESS ANY KEY TO BOOT FROM CD. Press enter and windows will load, allow it to fully load before next step.

(2) Press R that will take you into the recovery console.

(3) Next you will be asked which installation of windows you want to load, press 1 (making sure your numbers are enabled) then enter.

(4) You will now be asked for your administrator password, type this in and press enter. (If you do not have a password just press enter)

(5)Type fixboot then press enter,your machine will then write a new boot volume.

When this done type exit and press enter.

Regards,Adamski.
