Windows XP Pro SP3. Acer AMD Desktop. I had some corruption last week, and tried to use my Windows install CD to (R)epair the system (not Recovery Console, but "Install" - "Repair"). Setup went through all the prelim file copying, switched to the graphic progress screen and then only got so far, first it asked for the NVOL for the chipset drivers (which I had on another CD, and successfully pointed setup to them) but then it complained something along the lines of "Could not find driver for MEDIA" (wish I could remember the exact verbage, but I can't), and restarted. Went right to the "setup is initializing windows" screen, through all the prelim copying again, got to the graphic progress screen and now complains about a whole plethora of missing drivers and other problems and restarted again. But at no point in the process does there ever seem to be a way to get OUT of the cycle. I don't even seem to be able to get back to the menu to choose a fresh install rather than a repair. Not that I really want to. Is there a way to remove setup from the bootup? Any chance of getting back to even my corrupted Windows. Since repair obviously doesn't work, and it looks like reinstalling is the only option, I have to copy over a number of files.
