Hi guys

I tried this proceedure below

access denied

thanks
Dakotaoh



1. Put WindowsXP bootable CD in your CD drive and power on PC 2. When prompt comes Press a key to boot from CD... press any key.
3. Watch the Windows setup screen carefully. When comes Press R for Recovery console, press R.
4. It will ask you to choose Windows installation. Press 1 and then Enter.
5. It will ask for Administrator password. Do so.If no password is set, then just press Enter.
6. Type fixboot C: and press Enter.
7. Type copy d:\i386\ntldr c:\ and press Enter.
8. Type copy d:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\ and press Enter.
9. Restart your computer.

Assumptions:
Your CD driver letter is D:.
You have only one partition or only first partition has Windows XP installed.

Well...I don't see why.

D: is the optical drive, correct?

You have a Microsoft Genuine XP CD...not some recovery/restore disk supplied by the system manufacturer?

An "access denied" message while reading from an optical drive...makes no sense to me.

System manufacturer and model?

Disconnect...the external drive.

Try to boot the system.

I guess you are not going to reveal...system manufacturer and model? We are only trying to figure out what is going on, nothing subversive about the request.

If you have a MS Genuine XP CD...then you ought to be able to do a repair install of XP.
