Default having boot problems

sponsored links

 
i get the boot disc error when trying to boot.
i think i may have deleted some files i needed.
so i took that hard drive out with the OS and put it as a slave on another computer and the hard drive works. is there any way to replace these files from a different computer to allow it to boot on its own?

thanks
-drew

Cool The Question

You didnt say which OS you have the problem with?

With some if you where to boot from the cd you would get a repair option..

If its an older OS yes in some cases you could copy missing files from other machines and repair your os but its trial and error.

Cool Repair

Why not copy all your files onto the other computers hard drive, re-format and re-install XP on the original drive then copy your files back!

You can try the repair console which will be displayed to you if you boot from the XP installation CD
