    I don't think so because all I want is my missing files. I have a registered copy. I just do not have the files to fix what I broke.

    Screw Bill, I've had over 1,000 shares of his stock for more than a 14 years. He should get his butt over here and fix it.

    I don't think it's violation if you use one to restore corrupted files.  But a full install would be a definite violation.

    sorry vvolfe1, i just trying give you hard time and didn't mean to open this can of legal worms on you...good thing you held on to that stock though, you may need to sell it to finance your legal team.

    btw, i may have a few copies of ms windows xp home academic versions...although i doubt that would help you much.

    If you have a valid registration and only install it on the the number of cpu's the license is designated for you are fine. It really doesn't matter if you use someone else's CD/DVD or not. Most software, including MS Windows, you pay for a license not the actual files.

    is it getting power?
    or just turns on but wont boot to windows?
    what files do you need?
    if you know what files you need you can go to microsoft and get em on different pc, burn em and install after using a startup disk, maybe. im no computer guru.

    Thanks,
    My problem with it is I do not have the start up disk.  I'm sure I made one but that was 4 yrs ago and 2 different homes.  A guy at work will hopefully be bringing me one.

    Ben's problem is the ntldr file is corrupt and needs to be reinstalled.  My brother has dell XP home disk that I can get from him today.  All that we need to do is run a repair and pull the ntldr file from the OS disk.

    yeah but if his pc isnt starting he wont be able to use his cd rom right?
    if you get the xp cd you are going to need a startup disk to get him to cd rom support.
    go get that file and get it on floppy before you go to his house.
    maybe im being an idiot here and you know something i dont.
    just trying to help out./site/DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/_default/emoticons/biggrin.gif
