Emachine told me this:

Repairing a Windows XP installation:

If you cannot boot into Windows Normal Mode then you will need to try
booting into Safe Mode. To do this, turn on the computer and
immediately start tapping the F8 key about two times per second until
you get the Startup menu with several options to choose from. Using the
arrow keys on the keyboard, highlight the option for Safe Mode and press
the Enter key. This will take you to a screen where you will need to
choose "Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition", again by pressing the Enter
key. At the login screen, choose the Administrator account. There
should be no password for the default Safe Mode Administrator account.
If a password has been set for the Safe Mode Administrator account and
you do not know what the password is, then you will need to run a full
restore instead of this repair operation.

1. Click on "Start".
2. Click on "Run".
3. In the Run box type the following: "c:\Windows\i386\winnt32.exe"
without the quotes.
4. Press the "Enter" key. This will start the Windows Installation
5. This brings up an error window titled "Windows Setup". The option
to upgrade will not be available at this time because setup was unable
to load the file c\:Windows\I386\winntupg /netupgrd.dll
6. Click on "OK" to bypass the upgrade error.
7. The next window that opens will say, "Welcome to Windows Setup".
8. Click on "Next".
9. Then, a window will open concerning the License Agreement.
10. Select "I accept this agreement".
11. Click on "Next".
12. On the next window, you will need to enter the following Product

:tazz: :) :) :woot: :P :) :)

13. Enter your "Product Key".
14. Click on "Next".
15. The next screen that is displayed is your "Setup Options".
16. Click on "Next".
17. The next window will ask if you want to download the updated setup
18. Select "No", as it is advisable that you select the option, “No
skip this step and continue installing….” to avoid potential Internet
connectivity issues.
19. Click on "Next".
20. The computer will then begin the "Preparing installation" process.

21. When the computer reboots, it will automatically enter setup.
22. The screen that is displayed will display the following:


Windows XP Home Edition setup

Welcome to setup

This portion of the setup program prepares Microsoft Windows XP to run
on your computer.
To setup Windows XP now: press Enter.
To repair a Windows XP installation using recovery console: press R
To quit setup without installing Windows XP: press F3


23. Press "Enter".
24. On the next screen, it will say the following:

26. Press R to repair the installation. Setup will now continue with
the repair process, which may take up to 45 minutes or more.

asking for a specific file located on a specific CD. If this occurs,
click on the Cancel button and the install will then proceed normally to

27. Follow the prompts to complete the repair.
28. Once this completes, it will take you through the initial setup
29. Follow the onscreen prompts to complete the repair.

The bad thing about this is at step 3 it says the .ink error so it wont let me do nothing, what i was thinking if you can put that step 3 in the safe mode command promt format so i can do it there. I say this because i put regedit and i could use it, but in any other modes i put regedit it says the ink error so look what you can do, thanks
