Did you change to the cdrom drive by typing in D: and then click Enter?
This will get you to the cdrom drive if that is what your cdrom drive is.
Are you using a full version Genuine Microsoft XP cd or is it a Recovery CD?

Do you have a valid product key for your copy of XP?

Do you have a friend that would let you burn the repair disk suggested earlier using their machine? (Must be running XP)

So a burned copy?
I'm confused now as I thought XP was loaded on the system?
Does the system have XP or Vista on it?

If you have a system with a burner in it then download the file and burn it according to the instructions as a ISO cd and not data. . Then just bring it over to your system that is downbootup with the cd in and you should be able to do the instructions

Since I'm using burncdcc how do I add a clean version of userinit.exe to the current RC.ISO? Do I just find the RC.ISO file and click burn?

The instructions will still work with burncdcc. The only difference is what program you are actually using.

All I see on Burncdcc is File Image, Device, Speed
How do I do this on BURNCDCC

First, we'll need to add a clean version of userinit.exe to the current RC.ISO

* In the upper right pane, double click on the i386 folder.
* Right click in the upper right pane and select Add Files...
* Navigate to C:\Windows\System32 and select userinit.exe
* Then click Open to add userinit.exe to the CD image.
* Click File and select Save As...
* Name the file RCplus and save it somewhere you can find it.
