I got this error message 4 days ago, and still can't figure out a way to get this resolved. I have gone on Google, and other sites to try to find an answer. Here is what I have tried based on what I have read: I have my Windows XP CD, and when I put it in, it runs, but nothing else happens. I have gone into the BIOS to make my CDROM the primary boot. I read everywhere that "once you get to the Recovery Console", well I can't even get to that. Each time I reboot, it immediately goes to the error message. I am going to every PC Tech Forum that I can find for help. Some explanations are too technical, and I am new at this. Can someone please help? I have pics, files, etc., that I can't lose. Thanks!
