Due to some problem I run chkdsk on my Windows Xp computer that deleted or corrupted few system files due to which my windows topped working. So I thought to repair windows for fixing those corrupted or deleted files. Hence I borrowed an installation disk from my friend which is a slipstreamed xp sp3 CD. Followed a installation repair guide by Doug Knox on Microsoft site.
Now the problem is here. There was a step in the guide where I need to press F8 to accept user agreement. Well, I did that but after this I was not able to press R that repairs the installation. After few minutes it directly jumped to setup window where we need to create or format partition for new installation.
Well, I donít want to do a fresh installation as there are enough data stored on my C drive. Do you guys have any idea why am not able to repair my system ?
