1) XP Pro refuses to boot telling me that
Windows could not start because the following gile is missing or corrupt:
Please re-install a copy of the above file
2) XP Home
This install boots almost to the desktop. I get the splash screen the lass comes up with a message and reboots the sytsem. The message says
When trying to update a password, this return status indicates that the value provided as the current password is not correct then it reboots.
I have been able to boot the system off a Knoppix CD to copy off the ducuments the user made. I tried booting off an XP CD but it refuses to access the cd.
I do not have a laptop HDD to standard IDE adapter so I can not pull the drive to work on it. Any suggestions?
