    Thanks for the information. However I have not received any Installation CD. There seems to be a 4 GB Partition where probably the installation program resides like in Laptops. Most laptops get into the installation mode on pressing F12 at boot. So how do I do it here.

Usually the problem lies with your Software or Windows Installation. The problem is when you Boot your computer it can't read because some how the hard drive got scrambled. You have to Install a fresh windows to solve the problem, no other way around it. Obvioulsy, its no good to you in this condition, Insert your Installation disk and turn the computer off and then back on, Install a new Windows. Good Luck. When the computer asks you if you want to install windows to that drive, you might want to consider if you have to delete that partition, and then create it again, after you do Windows will automatically format the disk for a fresh installation.

Missing or corrupt win/sys32/config/ sys file

The best thing to do is borrow a Win XP cd from a friend and do the following:
When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your applications, it just re installs the Windows files. This is great because when it works and you don't need to reinstall all your software.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Desktop doesnt boot.

If you have a windows XP recovery CD, try running that at boot.

also, try pressing the f8 key to boot windows in safe mode.

it sounds like a corrupted OS install: if you can't recover, you may have to reformat your hard drive and reinstall windows.

WUPS.DLL issue after fdisk and reloading XP Home

when you finished the installation you must of ticked the part where it says 'do you want windows to check for updates now', as the wups.dll is the file that checks the internet for windows updates. If you cannot get windows to startup correctly, then i would start your system up again with the disc in and either choose repair or reinstall and dont let it check for updates this time as you won't be connected to the net.
