I cannot get into Windows normally or by any safe mode methods. I plan to use the Windows Reinstallation CD for Mircosoft Windows XP Pro Service Pack 2 provided by Dell for my 1507 Inspirion Labtop to access the Recovery Console. I read that you may encounter a message that says the CD cannot be run because a newer version of XP is installed. If this does indeed come to pass I read that could I should slipstream the necessary Windows XP Service Pack(s) with the contents of my Windows XP Installation CD. If the aforementioned scenario occurs, since the computer in question is unable to open any vestige of the OS can I create this new slipstreamed cd on my Dell Dimension 8400 Desktop with XP Home from which I just wrote this forum entry? Will I encounter any issues if I put the reinstall cd from my Inspirion in the the cd player on my Dell Dimension 8400 Desktop? I know that AutoStreamer will create a temp folder to which it will copy the XP reinstall cd but i don't what to cause some unforseen catastrophe before Autostreamer has the chance to work.
