Re: step by step for system recovary on xp pro

First find the windows product key, and write it down. the firts thing you should do is to enter the BIOS setup. When you switch on your system you may be asked to press a certian key. for e.g. "Press DEL to enter setup". press the relevant key. Change the boot sequence to set the CD ROM first.

then you put your windows CD in  the drive and reboot the system.
When it displays "press any key to boot from CD." press any key.

After a while, the system displays options for Installation. Press Enter key.
Then folow the instaruction on screen.

When it displays a message like this...

"C:\windows xp professional"

Press enter and then just follow the onscreen instructions like a normal installation. This way you would be able to recover your windows XP system and bootloader if damged.

Do not select the option to format, partition or delete your Documents and settings. this may damage your system and personal files.

What you can do is to bring the computer back to time before installing XP Pro.
Go into Start - All Programs - Acessories - system Tools - system recovery and here choose according to the calender a piont/date before installing XP PRO.

The computer will be brought back timewise to a point/date of your choise.

Problem w/ WIN2000 Pro & XP Pro

click on the link given below and find oc25.dll....if you are unable to find press keyboard key cntrl + f .A dialog box will appear now type oc25.dll and hit find key and you will find the oc25.dll .click on that file to download it to your computer.

Once you have downloaded the file you are looking for you still need to make sure Windows or the program causing the error can find it. Follow these steps:

1. If you are encountering an error with Windows...
The file you downloaded needs to be placed into the Windows System directory. On most machines this is one of the following locations:
C:\Windows\System (Windows 95/98/Me),
C:\WINNT\System32 (Windows NT/2000), or
C:\Windows\System32 (Windows XP).

If you are encountering an error with a particular program...
The file most likely needs to be in this program's directory. This directory is where the program is installed (i.e. c:\Program Files\ThisProgram).

If this step solves the problem, you do not need to complete step 2.

2. You may to register this file with Windows. Click on the Start Menu and then on 'Run'. If you are replacing a Windows system file, type the following command:
regsvr32 \windows\system\file.dll (Windows 95/98/ME),
regsvr32 \WINNT\system32\file.dll (Windows NT/2000), or
regsvr32 \windows\system32\file.dll (Windows XP).

For example, 'regsvr32 \windows\system\apphelp.dll'

If you are replacing a file for another program, change the directory where appropriate. For example, 'regsvr32 \program files\Norton\xyz.dll'

If the file is registered correctly, you will receive a positive confirmation message.
Please let me know your feed-back.
