Download http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/unetbootin-xpud-windows-latest.exe &http://noahdfear.net/downloads/bootable/xPUD/xpud-0.9.2.iso

 

You have to have a flash drive for this to work. Download the first one and then run the download. A screen will pop up and And it will give you format options for a flash drive select a flashdrive to format to. Then download the second one and click browse and look for that download. Then click ISO image button and then click the button to format to the flashdrive.

 

After Doing those steps plug the flash drive into the computer and push f12 and Then select usb tab. The software should pop up and select english. I will provide more details after youve done these steps. Sorry If I made this complicated.

Can you boot into safe mode? If not pop in a Windows install disc and pull up a command prompt.

 

Try 

chkdsk /r

and

sfc /SCANNOW

I managed to finally find a solution to my problem. I booted up Hirens Mini XP & copied over a new fs_rec.sys file into the \windows\system32\drivers\ folder on my hdd & hey presto!

 

Thanks for your advise. I was seriously close to giving up & re-installing windows.

 

I'll be getting myself an external hdd as soon as im paid :-P
