Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
I attempted to repair the windowsXP. I think I could have too if I hadn't followed the second set of instructions on a parallel OS. It installed a parallel XP and now if I try to do a repair it only sees the new OS and not the one with all my software on it. I think this happened because I used the same names as the original for the computer names. I can see the original when I first boot up but it still needs repaired so I can't boot to it. I can boot to the second one but all the programs have to be searched for to run.
Have I totally screwed this up or can I still get to the original XP somehow and repair it?
I tried adding yet another XP with a different computer name thinking I could then delete the 1st parallel XP. Didn't work so now I have three XPs on bootup. How can I delete 2 of these XPs?
It would be your best bet to format hard drive and just start over. Because just deleting files won't work. there is just too many.
