I have with me a machine with Windows XP. It starts, but after a few moment, it will restart itself again.
I tried booting via safe mode, and other options but to no avail. It always stops on mup.sys file and resets itself.
Is there a way to boot up the PC, run a scan disk to check the hard disk? I have with me a Knoppix CD. Does Knoppix contain some utility to scan the hard disk?
I cannot format my hard disk because of some important documents I have inside. I want to save/backup those first before doing a reformat.
I can't seem to locate my old Windows XP CD. If you still have your CD key and lost your Windows XP CD, where would one be able to download the installer?
@Col - ntfsfix only fixes the NTFS problem, but it does not do a scan disk type of checking. I want to check the hard disk the same way that scan disk does it.
