That means there is something that is missing.
Can you borrow a XP installation disk of the same type you have installed...[b]Home, Media or Pro['b]?
You can then run the scan to fix any problem files.
If you can't borrow a disk then we will have a problem trying to fix the system.

Yes it will continue to ask for the cd till it gets through everything.
At this point you would either have to wait to get the cd or purchase a new XP installation cd.

.No need to reformat when you get the CD. We can come back and try the sfc/ scannow first.
