This is a XP Home edition. I have an install CD for my laptop - an XP Pro.
I don't suppose that would help?

Do you have a lot of important files on this machine?

I'm starting to think you may have a bad HDD. If you have files you need, we'll keep trying to repair...if not, I would suggest formatting the drive and starting fresh. If we can't format, I would be just about sure the HDD is or is going bad.

What's HHD?
I have most of my files backed up or also on my latop. It wouldn't be a disaster if we lost them.

We're sure getting nowhere fast with the repair. There are a few more options we can try, but they generally end up causing data loss anyway.
