Lets work on getting you a copy of the recovery console first.
Is there a computer that you may use to burn a cd?
Do you know any one who has an original copy of XP? (recovery disc will not work)

Go to the link that I posted and download the folder to your desktop.
Than follow the instructions on how to burn an ISO, you will have to download that program.

You can download the recovery console here and read this to learn how to burn the ISO

Do you have your windows XP CD? If you do, I want you to put it in and turn on your computer. When you are given the message press any key to boot from cd..., press a key and Windows Setup will start. At the first screen where you have to enter input, hit R to enter the Recovery Console. Then you will have to hit 1 to log into your windows installation and then just hit Enter for the Administrator password because it is normally blank unless you changed it. Once you are at the command prompt C:\WINDOWS I want you to type each of the following, hitting enter after each line:
  • attrib -s -h -r c:\boot.ini
  • del c:\boot.ini
  • bootcfg /rebuild
  • fixboot
Now type Exit and take your XP CD out. Your computer will reboot itself. Post back how things are going.

Using BurnCDCC
This freeware utility is very simple and light.

If you don't have BurnCDCC, you can download it here. [/color]

1) Open BurnCDCC. You do not need to install this program, it runs by itself.

2) Click on the "Browse" button and navigate to the .iso file you wish to burn - in this example, it's called "memtest86+-1.70.iso". Click Open.

3) Insert your blank disc and ensure the correct drive is selected under "Device".

4) Ensure the "Finalize" box is checked.

5) Using the slider bar under "Speed", I recommend you slow it down to around 8x or 10x - too fast can cause errors (as described in step 5 above).

6) BurnCDCC will finish and eject the disc for you. Label it appropriately and there you have it - a disc that was burnt from an image.

You down loaded the recovery console correct?
Use burncdcc to browse to your desktop and burn the whole download to disc.
Then follow the directions in post # 22. (no I will not re-post the directions.)
