I'm trying to run a repair for my fathers computer. He has XP home that wont boot. So I want to boot from the CDRom (Change the boot sequence in BIOS)to repair his system and hopefully save his data. The problem is, I don't have a valid XP home disc, and niether does he! Is there something I can do besides buying a new XP home OS? I don't want to do anything illegal and that will give me nothing but problems in the future anyway.
I have a valid XP Pro disc with product key,but not a home disc. My IT teacher told me to run SFC - system file checker - in the run line. What does that mean? I can't even GET to the run line because the computer wont even boot.
Wanna help my Pop, what to do!?!?
P.S. Thanks to the creators of this site. You're awesome!
