Can't seem to find the repair option for WinXP...It just wants to start the whole install over again. Where is it? Thx

How far are you getting through the installation? Windows will copy files from the CD before you get to the repair option.

Yep...I'm on the repair screen but it's asking for the admin password. I didn't make one when installing so I just pressed enter. No dice. I then made a password for the admin and it now says it's wrong...

If your computer is running download and run SIW click on Secrets, you may find it there.

The whole OS crashed hard disabling by CD, DVD burners and even my DUN. I've never seen such a bad crash. No matter...I had to reformat and start over again. Fortunatley, I backed up monthly so it was no big deal. Still, it was wicked bad.
Thx
