You must still enter the number of the installation if it asks for it. So if your XP is 1 then press 1 and then enter at the admin request.

Ive tried that and at the admin request i hit return and then it comes up with c:/windows and nothing happens. if press return again it does the sames thing

If you get a request for a password then you have selected the first press "R" option to start the "recovery consol" if you are trying to do a "Repair install" refuse the first press "R" option by pressing the "enter" key will progress to the press "F8" to aggree the licence terms at the next screen choose the press "R" option to do the repair install
