Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
I believe he explained what os he had by what recovery cd he was intending to use, however regarless of what make the pc is from personal experience, i would use the xp boot disc to boot to the recovery console which you get to from booting from your xp disc, and follow the below: To boot to the recovery console follow these steps: 1. Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer. Click(or press any key) to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted. 2. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console. 3. When prompted type "1" or if you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console. 4. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER. 5. then type the following: cd \ attrib -c ntldr exit rebot if it does not and your pc should work again, come back here if this does not work.
