Specs: Windows XP
microsoft small bus svr was supllied and preinstalled with microsoft wind 2000 server. i do not have the original disks, but i do have the lic key. i have contacted microsoft and bowline.i was told that this product is "end of life'.
we experirnced a power cut and when i restarted the computer, it asks for the disk to repair the missing or corrupted files. is there any solution without obtaining the original disks to solve the problem.

If a i386 folder exists on the drive you can try redirecting to it for the repair files.

You want to start by getting into recovery console and running chkdsk /p

If you can get ahold of a windows 2000 server cd that you can boot would be a good start
