I ended up installing my xp pro. Everything was working well this morn. I was having some errors installing new updates..like sp2. I kept getting new hardware found message so I put in my mobo cd and install the drivers, but then lost my internet connection. 2 icons for the network connection. I did a sys restore and now I am getting this The Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service terminated unexpectedly and there is a count down of 60 sec before it shuts off and reboots. It keeps doing this. FML

OK that may be a issue.
Try this and see if it will help. It seems something is stopping the service and without being able to get into windows to fix it then we will try the recovery console to run the fixes I can suggest.

How To Run Chkdsk /r from Recovery Console:


How to run checkdisk from recovery console (Windows xp). (Courtesy dsenette)
  • Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.
    Note:Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted to do so.
  • When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
    Note:If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
  • When you are prompted to do so, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
  • At the Recovery Console command prompt, type the following then press Enter:

    chkdsk /r

  • Allow this to run UNDISTURBED until completed (45 min or so)
  • Report any errors

I was able to boot in the cd, but it looks like it is trying to reinstall xp. Should I just reinstall or format then reinstall or just repair?

I forgot to mention that yesterday when I was trying to install xp it said I had a possible error on on the drive. I went an replaced the drive for a new one.

I just pressed the recover and it is asking which windows installation would I like to log onto

If you replaced the drive and it has a OS on it then you would need to format and reinstall.
I suggest you delete the main partition and then reset that partition up. Format using NTFS with a normal format and not Quick Format. Then a fresh install of XP.
Is the OS disk you are using a genuine Microsoft disk or is it a burned copy?

this one is burned

1st problem. Burned copies usually will not work as files will be missing as you have seen. Second they are not legal and 3rd it is against GTG Terms of Use to assist without a legal authentic OS disk.

What do you mean by exchange?
Do you not have a authentic XP or Win 7 installation disk?
Where are the OS disks coming from?
