XP Recovery Console
Another XP Recovery Console
You don't burn the iso file itself to CD., you create a CD from the iso file using your CD burning software. There is a good freeware burner called DeepBurner which will do this. Another called ISO Recorder is also very easy to use.
Boot the CD and at the first opportunity, enter R to start the Recovery Console.
Next, choose which XP installation you want to login to. Normally this will be 1.
Lastly you will be asked for the Administrator password. Just press the Enter key as the Administrator does not have a password (unless you gave it one, then you would enter it).
From the command prompt, enter: chkdsk c: /r
Allow it to complete undisturbed.

Alternative is to boot to the Safe Mode Selection Menu via F8 and chose VGA mode, see what that does for you. If that allows you to boot then you can look for newer (or older) driver for the new video card.

I was updating my drivers one day. It told me to restart the computer, so i did. Past the loading screen, the screen turned black(ps... custom comp). I went to try safe mode. The keyboard and mouse didnt work. I tried the usb and regular mouse and keyboards. Next i tried system restore. That didnt work. It would go back to loading screen then same problem. I tried to put on vga style lie ztruker said but i have no option for that. I tried the recovery console. It also did not work.
I have a legit copy of windows xp home with sp1. But when i try to repair windows a lot of files are missing because i have sp2.
If that way would work were could i find a Windows xp home with sp2 cd?
