Hello,

i have a win xp proffesional edition. after rebooting the pc, i got a DISK BOOT FAILURE message.

when i used the recovery console from win xp installation cd i see only c:\

The actual message is:

The path or file specified is not valid
C:\>

I knowi should be able to shoose the OS and then follow the steps. however, i dont get:

1. C:\WINDOWS

How can i solve this?
