Hello there saded,

The first thing we need is the Recovery Console. We can get this on a CD and run it that way, please follow the instructions below.

Download RC.iso and burn it to a cd as an ISO image. You may need a burning tool like ISO Recorder to do this...be sure to get the version for the operating system you'll be creating the disk on.

Do you maybe have any friends or family that have the same windows version as you? ( I heard from Rorschach112 that you didn't have an XP disk.)

Regards,
Olrik

There's a possibility that you still have the windows installation files on your drive.

Look for the following folders and tell me if you have them.
C:\I386
C:\WINDOWS\DRIVER CACHE\I386
C:\WINDOWS\SERVICE PACK\I386

Regards,
Olrik

Please download DirLook by jpshortstuff from one of the following mirrors:
Link 1
Link 2
Link 3
  • Double-click DirLook.exe to run it (Vista Users should right-click and select Run As Administrator...).
  • Ensure that Show Hidden Files/Folders and BBCode Ouput are both checked.
  • Copy the content of the following codebox into the main textfield:

    C:\I386
    C:\WINDOWS\DRIVER CACHE\I386
    C:\WINDOWS\SERVICE PACK\I386
  • Click the DirLook button to start the scan.
  • When finished, a notepad window will open with the results of the scan. Please post this log in your next reply. (Note: The log can also be found at C:\DirLook.txt)
Note: Scanning may take longer for large folders.

Regards,
Olrik
