of this "Recovery Disk" etc. Most people that get a custom built PC get, or SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN, a normal Windows XP full installation CD.
If, in fact, that is what you have, then you would be able to simply reinstall Windows over itself, or Optionally clear the drive and do a totally new install, all controlled directly by the Windows CD with very little intervention by you.
Or is the "custom" just a Dell, Compaq, HP or such that you customized by selecting some of the components?
i got a ne pc custom built and it hd a few problems to begin with and after it ouldn reboot i decided to reinstall windows to see if i could bein arfesh so i deleted windows off the partition and using my recovery disc put a ne copy on.
However i think maybe it didnt install properly or is missing files as it now wont bootup at all. It just loops or the screen stays black where it would usually start windows. I tried putting the recovery disc back in and it loaded the files howeverit the just rebooted rather than let me put wndows on. Any suggestions on how to reput windows on or any of the missing files?
