Hello Master,

When you have got to repair the Win XP commands and you want to do it from the command line, then you will definitely have to use the CHKDSK commands. I think the procedure you have outlined above points out clearly what needs to be done in order to execute those commands.

Regards,

Hi,
 
The first thing is that why windows XP repairing occurs? Because system files are missing or corrupted. That's why a system needs repairing. Now Microsoft provides one way to repair Windows XP. It is by using Command Prompt on windows Boot.
 
There is a step by step procedure to repair Windows XP.
 
Step 1. Firstly we know that which file we are going to repair. The location of these files is C:WinodowsSystem32ConfigSystem
 
Step 2. Insert windows XP bootable Disk in CD/DVD-ROM and restart windows.
 
Step 3. Your PC should automatically detect the CD and you will get a message saying "Press any key to boot from CD". Soon as the computer starts booting from the CD and you will get the following screen:
Boot from CD

Step 4. Press any key on the keyboard and get loads all files in your system. After that you will get the following Screen:

Step 5. After the necessary files and drivers are loaded you will get a Windows XP Setup screen. You have the option to do a new windows install, Repair previous install or quit.
 
Step 6. Press Enter to setup Windows XP now.
 
Note: Even though the second option is to repair a Windows XP installation, the recovery console is not the option we want. We choose to perform a complete repair installation a few steps from now.
 
Step 7. The next screen that appears is the Windows XP Licensing Agreement screen. Read through the agreement and press F8 to confirm that you agree with the terms.
