I have a dell dimension 2400 that lost power in a storm. It would not reboot because of a corrput file WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM. I could not fix that so I tried to repair...successful. I got a win98 boot disk and fdisk the drive. When I try to format and install win xp home, I get the error PAGE FAULT IN NON-PAGED AREA. I have tried installing the HD in a computer that works and I get the same message. It has to be in the HD but I don't know what to do next???

Hmmm...you say that you did a successful repair...yet you say that you cannot install XP.

Which is it?

Do you have an XP CD that would permit access to the Recovery Console and/or a repair install of XP?
