Hi everyone! My father just called me at work and says that whenever he tries to boot his computer running XP home, he gets the message that the config.sys file is either missing or corrupted. I have searched around, and all of the options I find to repair this require an XP CD. _He either does not have one/ lost it etc._
I got him to attempt safe mode but all of the safemode options get him to the same message. It doesn't help that I am getting all of this info from him third hand over the phone (now I know how help desk people feel!).
To summarize, is there any way to repair this w/out his XP disc? If I could get him my copy of XP can he use it to _repair_ his issue (obviously I don't want him to reinstall my XP disc on his computer or MS will flag the copy... maybe just pull a file from the disc to his computer?)
Anyway thanks for reading and in advance for any help!
