Hi silvermine...

This is good news!

Now run the Repair again following the guide in post #117 under the Set Up heading. If you have any questions, ask before doing anything.

This is happening again. --- It's continuing to reboot over and over......
Right before it starts a new reboot it says "Setup is being restarted"

Do I boot to CD again or press DEL to enter setup? I have just been letting it boot by itself.

Yes...F8

On the next screen you'll want to press the R key. After selecting the installation to repair...don't choose the failed set up if it is offered.

:tazz: That's what we want. It should appear just like it is installing XP for the first time, but it will leave your programs and data intact.
