Question about Computers & Internet
It has win.2000 on it now but says a file is missing or corrupt . i have a win xp disk but it wont boot off of it. ive tried changing what it boots off of first but no luck
That is correct.. IF you are using windows 2000 the files are NOT the same as the files under XP.. Your best bet is to EITHER install the complete XP or find the win2k installation disk,, even an upgrasde disk for win 200 can be found probably around 100.00. IF the system isn't booting from your XP disk IS Your disk an ORIGINAL or a copy of the original?.. If for example your CD rom is drive E then see if you can find a win XP emergency boot disk and access the CDROM goto e:\windows\i386 then run the setup program, many cases this will overwrite your existing OS.. but do so at your OWN RISK I will not be accountable if you lose any of your important files.. some win98 emergency boot disks can access the cdrom but you may have to make certain additions to the autoexec.bat and/or config.sys files. be careful when using DOS because you can completely delete EVERYTHING on the HDD if you use the right command(s). As A DOS BABY I have performed many lazarus miracles but I have been using dos since the early 70's
