    Read:;en-us;Q228888 (disregard 2000, still applies Xp)

    I'd say start with CheckDisk from booting with your Xp CD and then selecting the first R prompt, then press 1, then press Enter.

    To log on to the Xp Recovery Console

    Then type: chkdsk volume:/f and then press ENTER (substituting your volume name to the Drive letter ie C )
    More info here:

    If you don't have your Xp CD, try one of these free CDs

    Try to be clear in your responses, like what options? and any further info.

    But to actually start from Boot CD

    1. The BootCD must be in the drive
    2. The CD must be a Bootable CD
    3. The CMOS must be set for CD first boot option (see below)
    4. You may receive info "Press any key to boot from CD" Make sure to press a key on the keyboard

    Regarding CMOS settings:
    When you first turn on your computer, you should notice a prompt like DEL or F2 or F10 to get into CMOS (or Bios, Setup)
    Once in Bios settings, locate your computer boot (or start) order
    Confirm it is in this sequence
    First Boot Device= CD
    Second Boot Device= HardDrive

    Then Save and Exit (usually by hitting F10 key)
