It means that your computer is missing a file that windows xp needs to run boot properly or is missing a program that your home edition xp needs. Repairing the OS or windows xp home edition by means of your xp instalation cd will do the job. Just insert your xp installation disk to your cd/dvd rom and select install windows xp home edition. Then select ( repair ), and so on let it finish repairing . Once your system rebooted, let it run without pressing enter or space bar. Just watch and let your computer do the job. This will probably solve your boot problem. But before doing all of this, please check your IDE or SATA cable and also the power cable that is connected to your hard drive. Try to unplug and plug again to ensure a good connection. If this won't work, you can proceed repairing Your windows xp installation or reinstalling a new xp operating system. Have a nice day and i hope i was in any help to you friend.
Ask your friends to borrow either a "retail" Windows XP Home Edition CD-ROM (bought when XP was available in retail stores) or an "OEM" (Original Equipment Manufacturer) version. The OEM version was used by Microsoft-licensed "system-builders" (small computer-stores that assemble computers from the individual components, and then install this "generic" version of Windows).
If you have the "genuine Windows" decal on the side of your desktop, use that 25-character product-key and the "borrowed" CD-ROM to reinstall Windows.
I have just installed windows xp home edition from the installation disc. The problem being I cant find the product key please can help me resolve this issue or give me a new product code thanks in advance
When installing a new operating system, all file saved will be deleted. Since you've lost all data, you might as well format the entire drive, and then reinstall the vista inspirat thing. Then, download an Avast! anti virus form avast.com. Download the home version, which is free and scan the computer for any viruses. Delete every last one of the suckers.
