My OS had been giving me some problems. So I tried to repair/reinstall it. but when i tried to boot from the cd and tried to repair it it took me to the recovery console and their asked me to enter Administrator paasword. I had never set an Administrator pass. before. Only my own account was pass. protected and tried that pass but didnt work, so then i decided to reinstall OS but deleted all the old files and then copied them again from the CD and then it booted into safemode and before the windows even start up in the safemode it gives me an error " Windows XP setup cannot run under safemode. Setup will restart now. So now it keeps on rebooting and gives me the same msg. everytime. I tried tapping F8 and tried to boot into normal mode but it keeps on taking me to the safemode.

The quick way would be to use a utility like WipeDrive to wipe the hdd and then format and partition the hdd and reinstall the OS.
