First Thanks to all of you for your kind assistance and your time.
After trying all the keys I succeeded with the "Delete" one. And after some tial and errors, I learnt how to change the sequence of the Boot device.
The computer then boot from the CD, opening the first screen that offers to load repair console. As advised, I skiped the first screen and clicked on the second Repair command.
The repair process ran smooth, asked for the CD key while "installing Windows" and after a while a window popped up with the following:Windows cannot open this file:
To open this file Windows needs to know what program created it. Windows can go online to look it up automatically, or you can manually select from a list of programs on your computer.
After cliking on OK and Cancel several times to allow the process to continue, additional windows (same ones) popped up for the followong files: "regsvr32.exe", "fixmapi.exe", unregmp2.exe", "Cmd.exe" , "migrate.exe", "logagent.exe", "uploaddm.exe", "mstinit.exe".
Each time I was cliking OK, I got the Internet page with "This Page Cannot Be Displayed".
As I mentioned above after many attemps of OK and Cancel, the process ended,
the PC rebooted but the issue has not been solved.
Note: When The PC rebooted I 've got a window (as above) for the file: Setup50.exe. I cliked on Cancel to get the Desktop opening.
I repeated this task twice, but got the same results.
Why these windows popped up during the repair process?
Is this means that I cannot repair my existing OS and I have to reinstall it completely?
If positif, what about all the existing files. Do I have to copy all of them (except the OS) from my drives (C & D) using a USB (Disk on Key - since I cannot open the Nero program to burn a disk) and temporarily install them on another PC. Or, the reinstallation of the OS will not affect the existing files
Again many thanks for your guidance and your time
