put your XP cd in the rom drive, cancel auto run, go to Start > Run > type in sfc /scannow hit enter, this is a system file checker that will check and replace corrupt windows system files.

EDIT: Note the space between sfc and the /, if typed incorrectly it will not run.

Phone up Microsoft. They can probably give you a new install disk (providing your existing one is legit), or advise you on what else you can do.

i think i have tryed that before. i dont think they let me, they like charge me money to talk to them, i never did it.

alright that didnt work. i dont think microsoft is gonna give me another cd.

two things i could do.

download an illegal copy of windows and burn it to a cd, or, i could like i dont know, get the files off of the good working partition?

well, the downloading XP from the internet may be illegal, but how about this: make a list of every file that is 'missing'. Search them on Google, most of them should be available for download (even if it means making a few accounts with the sites), out them all in a folder and point the installer to that location. If that dosen't work out, someone is bound to have a 'used' XP disk on eBay.

oooh, yeah that could work. As long as the files are not corrupt in the first place.
