Win xp home oem recovery disc with sp 1

I Boot with xp disc in and choose r for recovery it gets to
1:C:\WINDOWS
Which windows installation would you like to log onto
What do i have to type next, i am the only user and log on as R

It says in book the disc will reset to factory state doe's this mean you cannot use as a recovery disc.

if the disc you have says it will reset to factory settings you will lose all your files if you use it.It will reset your computer to when you first bought it.

Are you saying the disc with the pc cannot be used for a repair but just to restore to factory setup.
On the disc it says windows xp home edition sp 1a
this recovery cd rom was preinstalled on your hd at factory and is for backup only.

I have a bought disc win xp pro would it pay me to format and install that.
