Now, before we go to the next step...

The disk has Xp media center version 2005 with update rollup 2

I assume, this is a CD from your nephew?
The problem with Windows Media Center Edition CD is, that it doesn't allow slipstreaming (ask Bill why).
So, I need to know exactly what that CD is (ask your nephew, if you have to).
Is it factory made Windows XP Media Center Edition Service Pack 2?

This is the recovery disk from Dell.I says it's a Replacement recovery media for support purposes only. Not for redistribution or use with a new computer.. Then the reciept has KIT;SW;OVPK;WXP;MCEO5U;dvd;ENG I have been trying to get it to work all day. It will not work at all. My nephew does have a copy I can run and get, take me about 45 minutes.

sfc won't accept recovery disk. It must be Windows CD, but again, it must be exact same type of Windows, Windows Media Center in your case, and it has to have exactly same SP, as your computer does.
So, in your case, you need CD, which says Windows XP Media Center Edition SP3. It could be SP2, but in that case, you'll have to uninstall SP3 in order to run sfc.

You may consider backing up your data, and reinstalling everything using that recovery CD.

Hi, I am trying to locate a disk. This morning I ran the Dell recovery disk in safe mode and ran ckdsk it repaired 1 or more disk errors. It has improved the speed some, but I still cannot download my photo"s and I am still getting a few blank spots when I click on new stuff, curser still blinks. Computer is not as bad.. I would like to try to get the disk. Is there anyway to check why Photo"s are not downloading. My nephew had the XP Home version. thank you

Run hard drive diagnostics: http://www.tacktech....ay.cfm?ttid=287
Make sure, you select tool, which is appropriate for the brand of your hard drive.
Depending on the program, it'll create bootable floppy, or bootable CD.
If downloaded file is of .iso type, use ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/ to burn .iso file to a CD, and make the CD bootable.

NOTE. If your hard drive is made by Toshiba, unfortunately, you're out of luck, because Toshiba doesn't provide any diagnostic tool.

When you double click on ESTOOL.EXE, it goes to DOS and disappears, so I sent it to CD-R and finished .
