|I left so much out in my first post cause it was late and I was tired. So I'll try and update it here:|
I managed to fix the Missing operating system message, I then got a message about "ntoskrnl" was missing, I fixed that, that was folowed by about 12 other files that were missing. I fixed all them and was then finally given the Repair option from the Install disk.
I tried that, and it deleted the files, created a list of needed files, then copied them across. Next it said that it needed to reboot the pc.
Once rebooted I got the Win XP Pro splash screen (not seen in days), then a blue screen saying "The setup is now being restarted ........" then the system reboots and gets stuck in that loop.
Rebooting everytime it says "The setup is now being restarted". It does nothing else and is just in that loop.
Now I'm at a complete loss as to what to try next.
