Repairing Xp from Cd

  hospeng 23:12 30 Jun 2004

I have lost part of the registery therefore Xp home wont load, it wont even go into safe mode. I have followed the advice from several people, Blue-storm, Michelle C, on the forum following the instruction to install then repair but at the end the computer says it needs to reboot to complete the repair and when it does I'm back to the beginning again without the repair, system still defunct. Does anyone out there know where I'm going wrong or what is the next step?
Many thanks.

Boot from the Windows XP CD.

Let the Setup go through the first part of the Installation procedure.

When you come to the screen in which it says "Welcome to Setup." press Enter to Setup Windows XP.

Press F8 to agree to the End User License.

Let the Setup search your system for previous versions of Windows.

When the Setup is finished searching your system, select your Windows XP Installation and press the R key on your keyboard to start the Repair Procedure.

Setup will delete all major system files and then replace them with new copies.

You will have to download all of the updates from Microsoft Windows Update again because it replaces the files.
