Please start your own topic
Although your issue may seem similar there can be other factors that may need to be resolved.
By bumping on someone's topic it makes it confusing for the tech to understand who they are helping. This can in turn cause the wrong support to be given and can cause instability or worse to happen to your system.
This is the second topic you have bumped on the same issue. Please do not do this for the reasons stated above.
Thank you for your cooperation.

Hey all, I have this problem right now, and my Windows CD will not boot from my CD Rom. I have went into bios to change the settings but it still does not work, can anyone find a solution to make my cd rom work?

3. After you have selected the appropriate option from step two, you will be prompted to select a valid Windows installation (typically number “1″).
Select the installation number, and hit Enter.

This is never prompted to me after pressing 'r'. It just takes me directly to the Microsoft Windows XP Recovery Console, and the only place I can type text is 'C:\>'. Am i doing something wrong?

I have solved my problem, so my problem was that my cd rom drive didnt work. But what everyone said, use the windows cd to recover will remove that error.

to clarify the commands that say no matching files are when I get to DEL BOOT.INI

UP TO THAT point it seems to be ok -

Please start your own topic, describing the issues and steps taken already to resolve them.
Each case is individual because of different software/hardware specs, also helping more than 1 people in each thread makes users confused.

Thank you for your cooperation.
