I'm trying to repair an XP Pro install using the repair cd. The issue is a corrupted registry. Following the MS help center instructions, I made a batch file to replace the registry.
It's not working. Does the CD need to match the edition and service pack of Windows on the disc?
How can I tell (retroactively, with no Windows access) what edition/sp is installed?
Any other ideas/thoughts? I am considering an upgrade install to Windows 7...
