skyace2,

Go to Start > Run, and type in: msconfig
In System Configuration windoe, select the Boot Tab
Is the Safe Boot option checked?

Do you have a Windows XP CD? If so, we may be able to run >chkdsk /r< from the Recovery Console. If not, do you have access to another computer where you can burn a CD?

We need to get 'into' the core of the computer somehow, and, as you tell us, it does not look as if it going to be through the Advanced Options Menu! A Linux based LiveCD is an option to edit the boot.ini file, but there are other CDs that can be used...

In a computer with CD burning capabilities, please download ARCDC from Artellos.com:
http://artellos.com/arcdc-page

Double click ARCDC.exe
Follow the dialog until you see 6 options.
Pick (for example): Windows Professional SP2 & SP3

You will be prompted with a Terms of Use by Microsoft, please accept.
You will see a few DOS screens flash by, this is normal.
Next you will be able to choose to add extra files. Select the Default Files.

The last window will allow you to burn the disk using BurnCDCC
Your ISO will be located on your Desktop.<<


Note: You need to burn the ISO to a CD, which is not the same as just writing/copying it to a CD. Please use the BurnCDCC program as instructed above.

Let me know when you are done and ahve the CD ready.
