Don't miss my last post too.
While we are waiting for input from my colleagues I had a thought. Sfc should be searching for the i386 folder. If it is not at the root (c:\) then it prompts for the CD as I understand. We have the i386 folder but it is within the xpsp3 folder. Maybe we need to place the i386 folder directly in c:\.
Do this first...
Please set your system to show all
Click Start, open My Computer, select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
Select the View Tab. Under the Hidden files and folders heading, select Show hidden files and folders
Uncheck: Hide file extensions for known file types
Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
Click Yes to confirm.
Then we need to change the registry again...
(And yes the "\\" is proper)
Open Notepad (Start -> Run -> type notepad in the Open field -> OK) and copy and paste the text inside the code box below:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
Name the file as sfcedit.reg, making sure save as type is set to " All Files ".
Double click on sfcedit.reg & allow it to run.
Now lets copy c:\xpsp3\i386 to the root of the drive.
Before you run this make sure there is not already a c:\i386 folder. If there is then this won't work. Do not proceed.
Please open Notepad
-> type notepad
in the Open field -> OK
) and copy and paste the text inside the code box below:
copy "c:\xpsp3\i386" "C:\i386" >> "%userprofile%\desktop\movefile.txt"
Name the file as movefile.bat
, making sure save as type
is set to " All Files
". It should look like
Double click on movefile.bat
& allow it to run. Copy and paste the content in your next reply (If the file does not open please check here for the file C:\movefile.txt
Now re-run sfc
