I have WinXP Home that came preinstalled in an eMachine. I was using Partition Magic (v8 ?) to reformat the C partition because I was going to install a copy of XP Pro on it (I did, but it didn't solve the other problems I was having). Somewhere in that process the F11 system restore option that used to display for a few seconds at boot suddenly stopped showing up. Anyway, I think all the files for XP Home are still intact on the recovery partition, but I can't quite figure out which file that F11 option pointed to. Does anyone know which file that might be? Many thanks in advance for your help.
