My friend and I are trying to restore the WinXP Home o's by using the supplied Restore CD that came with the machine.
The instructions are to get into the Desktop and insert the CD, Auto play won't work and its not possible to open the menu's from the Start-programms etc due to file corruption or possble Hardware error.
So opening the Drive with the CD and double clicking on the Set up icon on the CD will start the restore process, you get the chance to choose US British settings then you have to reboot the machine.
The Reboot will not happen and then you get an error saying error programme error.
So the factory resore is useless.
Is there something or anything that can be done. If it a case of Formatting and buying a XP CD ?
