I'm trying to re-install Windows XP on my old laptop (HP nx9010) to use as a backup for the new one, but I'm having issues. When i try to start the pc, it takes ages top start up then it fails to open windows saying a file is missing. It then says i should go to the recover menu to fix the problem which i do. I've tried formatting C:\ and i've run a disk check. It says there is an error on the disk. Uhm...what do i do? It ran perfectly the last time i switched it on, now it've giving me issues.

Nevermind. Somehow i got it right. Don't ask me how though..... :) Got windows back up and going. Only problem now is that i formatted the pc from within the recovery console and re-installed....but it doesn't appear to have formatted because all my old applications are still on there?
