My computer decided not to load windows xp one day. So, I've read a lot of issues and I decided to repair using the windows xp cd. At the welcome to set up screen, I chose ENTER. Then I hit F8, to agree. When I get to the next screen, there is no option for me to repair. It has options to create a partition or delete a partition. So, I can't repair it!
Then I decided to go into the windows xp recovery console by pressing R. When I get there, I get:
Microsoft Windows XP Recovery Console
The Recovery Console provides system repair and recovery functionality.
Type EXIT to quit the Recovery Console and restart the computer.
Thats all that is there. There is no option to choose 1. for windows xp professional.
Can anyone tell me how I could fix windows xp so I don't loss all my data on my drive.? I can't figure it out.
Thanks all for your help.
