When I turn on the computer, it says:
"Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
You can attempt to repair this file by starting windows setup using the original setup CD-Rom. Select "r" at the first screen to start repair."
Now, I know already that this requires either the Recovery Console or the original XP CD. I'm going with the latter, the XP CD. So I put the CD in and when the Dell screen comes up, I tapped F12 for the boot menu. It still went back to that first error screen. I tried F8 (safe mode), F2 (BIOS menu), and even "r", nothing works. I tried boot CDs, none work.
What should I do? :-|
I would be very appreciative if someone could help me with this.
Thank you in advance.
