Our win xp wont allow us to login we accidently deleted some files , we dont have any restore disk . what should we do? we bought a downloaded
version of recovery disk and copied onto a cd , but it did boot from the cd at all , may be it is not a bootable cd.
I had a problem earlier before my GT4010 went totally kaput several months later. I called the Gateway company tech and they ordered the disk for me. Cost 20 dollars for shipping and handeling but the actual start up disk was free. Now go figure that one out??? HA But it sure helped at the time.

Re: windows xp wont allow to login
Very possible depending on the computer as you boot up you will see a message to depress F2 or F8 or F10 or possible the del key to start a system restore. Tap on of these keys as it boots up and you should go into the restore mode....

If you have a valid Win XP Pro CD and want to install the operating system you'll need to format your hard disk drive. If you have allot of data on you're hard disk drive, (In Win 2000) Suggest you create a second partition within the free space of you're hdd and install windows XP Pro. Boot you're system with the XP CD. Pay close attention to the display screens. Follow the instructions for creating a second partition.
Format the new partition. (Quick). Install windows XP on the new partition. Once completed you can copy your personal data to win XP.
If you choose to keep the win 2000 partition and you do not wish to have a dual boot system than remove/delete the root files from the 2000 partition. These files; Autoexec.bat and Boot.ini. You're new XP Boot.ini should read like this;
[boot loader] timeout=30 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer
Once you're satisfied an no longer need win 2000 use windows diskmgmt.msc from the run command to delete the win 2000 partition.
Win 2000 uses a FAT16 where Win XP uses the FAT NTFS.
-Try to install from recovery disk your all system back -If you dont have recovery disk try to restore your system to couple of days back or a month -When you get the error make sure to look at details and see the file name mentioned. If the file name is "mpegsplitter.ax", this is because u have installed codecs, could be either k-lite codec or some other. U just need to delete this file, either by going to win xp or opening command prompt in task manager under file, select new task and type cmd. The file will be located in program files, k-lite codec, filters. Just delete this file and restart.
Boot PC from Windows XP installation CD you will be ask to instal fresh copy or repair existing installation - go for "fresh copy" software will analyze you PC and try to find your previous copy of Win XP you will be ask again to repair copy of your existing Windows Xp now go for "Repair" option so installation software restore all Windows files and will keep all your settings*.
This solution is only temporary because IE 7 and 8 will no longer work after restoring - backup all your data and instal fresh copy of Win XP after all and always keep Your Backup up to date!!
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
Insert the original Windows XP CD (Windows XP with Service Pack 2 is preferred, but not required) and reboot the computer. You may need to configure your computer to boot from the CD-ROM drive.When the Windows XP Setup has started, press "R" to "repair the Windows XP installation using Recovery Console". Select the Windows installation to repair (generally this is C:\Windows) by typing its number and then pressing ENTER. Type the Administrator password and press ENTER.
Type the following commands:
D: [ENTER] CD I386 [ENTER] EXPAND USERINIT.EX_ C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 [ENTER] NOTE: If your CD-ROM drive has a different letter assigned to it, enter "X:" instead, where X is the appropriate drive letter.
After entering "EXPAND USERINIT.EX_ C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32" you should see the text "1 file(s) copied", in which case all went well.
Remove the Windows XP CD, type "EXIT" and press ENTER to restart your computer. You should now be able to log on as normally.
