My windows xp was running perfectly well this morning, and in the evening, it was unable to boot. The message given was:
"\windows\system32\config\system " and require my original xp cd to repair.
did some googling, and followed the steps. ( I do not have the xp cd for this com, the one i am using comes from my older com: xp home edition. if i am not wrong, my current com is an xp professional, is this alright? the googling i says its ok.)
anyway, the problem now is that instead of the usual C:\windows they are asking me to choose like in other forums, my com only offer my D:\windows. i have no idea how to proceed. am i on the right track?
i performed chkdsk /r and chkdsk /p, but to no avail.
help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
