Hi -
Do you have a Genuine Windows XP Pro CD or can you get one ??

While you are looking, please type or Copy / Paste chkdsk /r in Run Box - This will take about an hour or so to run -

Thank You -

HI noknojon,

I'm actually trying to fix my friend's PC. I'm going to see him on Saturday to look at it. I know it's a Dell.
He said, he tried his XP Pro install disk but, it didn't work. I copied the corrupt file from my PC running XP Home.
I'll see if he has recovery console on his machine and get all the info about his DEll PC on Saturday.
I have a XP Pro CD that someone burned and gave to me years ago, problem is they didn't give me the product key for it and I don't remember who gave it to me so it's useless. I'll let you know how I make out on Saturday.

Thanks,
Riv

I was only going to add a sfc /scannow with the Windows CD to repair "Following file is missing or corrupt system32\drivers\NTFS.sys"

This should be found on a Genuine Windows CD - The Dell CD is "most likely" a reinstall CD -
