In an attempt to resolve the continuing problems, I attempted a Repair Install. I was able to boot from my CD and got a fair way into the repair process, but then received this error message:
"Your computer's startup program cannot gain access to the disk containing the partition or free space you chose. Setup cannot install Windows XP on this disk. This lack of access does not necessarily indicate an error condition. For example, disks attached to a SCSI adapter that wasn't installed by your computer manufacturer or to a secondary hard disk controller are not typically visible to the startup program unless special software is used......"
I have only two partitions and chose C rather than D

With my Dell disk I have done a repait install, it is just like any other. YOu set to boot device from the disk, you then select Install instead of the Recovery Console, it then looks for prior installation, it then asks if you want to do a repair install or a fressh install.
Hello and thank you
I think that my Reinstallation CD is an "Operating System disk", but no matter. Yes, let's wait to see if someone more familiar with Dell comes in
Meanwhile, may we assume that, for whatever reason, repair is not possible. Can you think of any other way,in which to deal with my problems, please?
