The XP version I have is Media Edition and it came with the computer when I bought it.

I do have an old XP disc that is an "XP Home Edition" upgrade disc for those that had an older version of Windows. I had upgraded to XP Home Edition from ME before I purchased this computer. Will that upgrade disc work? Otherwise, I do not know anyone that has an XP Media Edition disc. :tazz:

Let me know what to do next.

On the bright side I can log into safe mode now :) And, I ran the vundo fix in safe mode as originally instructed to do - looks like it still did not work?

as long as its an actual windows disc, it should work.

OK, I did as much as I could, here's what happened. I booted from the disc and chose "R" as instructed. Instead of the C:/Windoes prompt, the following appeared: 1: H:/MiniNT 2: H:/I386 There were no other choices. I chose the first one anyway and, after entering the info, came back as not valid path.

What went wrong? How do I get the C: prompt, instead of the H prompt?

No, I will tonight after work. How do you make a back-slash? My keyboard does not seem to have this option. :tazz:

Hi,

Sorry on not getting back to you sooner, but I have asked a few of the experts on their thoughts on this and they too are scratching their heads. I will let you know if anything changes.


Thanks,


Excal
