WIN XP Home Recovery Disk

In order to repair a system file, it would seem I need to get into the Repair function by booting up with the CD Rom. I only have a recovery disk ( from Mesh ). Does anyone know if this function is available as if it was the Retail version of Win XP ?

Start, Run, 'sfc /scannow', OK. Note the space. this will scan and repair your files.

XP System Recovery is a set of 5 CDs.

I hear what you're saying, but hp supplied me with a set of 5 CDs which are titled System Recovery. 'This CD contains a backup copy of all software originally installed', it says on them.

This is clearly not an XP installation disc!

Nuts.
