Last week on a restart I received a message that said:
"Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup using the original Setup CD-Rom. Select 'r' at the first screen to start repair."
Because this is a laptop leased and purchased through a university, I don't possess the setup CD.
Is there any way to boot up and at least recover my files before reimaging? I tried getting a copy of the XP Setup CD and they told me they do not provide them.
Thanks a lot for any help.
