|I did a health check of C Drive via Seagate and all is healthy.|
Have been having unstable and annoying problems with WIN XP and I have original 3 x recovery disks packed in plastic. Removed from plastic I tried to see if I could do a repair of XP or a recovery back to factory setting.
I inserted CD1 then restarted computer, hit a key, and was given two choices, but I believe are not the RESTORE options, such as:
Microsoft Windows Recovery Console
Microsoft Windows XP Home Addition
I HIGHLIGHTED "Recovery Console", believing this would set me in on the RESTORE/RECOVERY mode, but it led me to a dead-end. The SCREEN said:
<The recovery console provides system repair and receover functionality./b>
Then just below it said:
Which windows installation would you like to log onto (to cancel, press enter)?
This statement is an oxymoron, because after the entry you cannot enter any choice as there is no CHOICE box. I tried to type in either REPAIR or RECOVER, and the only function you can perform is ENTER, which cancels what I am trying to do.
I then repeated process and HIGLIGHTED Win Xp Home Edition and the computer booted up.
I then tried the 2nd Disk and still not joy.
I then went into MY COMPUTER and check the contents of the three disks:
Disk 1 had a Paint Pro Shop 4 recorded, which didn't make any sense whatsoever.
Disk 2 and 3 had RCDIM001.gh and RCDIM002.gh recorded and when clicked it led to programme not known, search the Internet for a solution.
Are my recovery disks false?
All want to do is either repair WIn Xp or recover back to new and start again.
