I recently ran a repair of my windows as i had a lot of problems, I inserted my recovery disc which includes windows Xp SP2 or so i thought, half way through the repair i was told that essential DLL. files were required to make windows run properly and to insert windows XP sp2 disc with location as i386 (i think that was the right one)!!!....for some reason it was not recognising the files it required, hence the repair didn't work and i was unable to start pc so had to do a re-install of windows, due to this i lost a lot of irreplaceable pictures and was hoping someone could help, i was told that even if you think you have formatted you hard drive it doesn't actually remove anything, the files are in there somewhere.....please help

Run it from a different drive e.g. floppy or USB drive.
