Don't believe Microsoft

Post by Kajun »

First rule of troubleshooting. Yes, even when working with Mac/Linux machines, or even cars. Rule out any faith in error messages and reports.

a) you try to install XP from DoS. It says you can't. You can. cd i386 and winnt. Done.

b) you encounter some critical errors which lead you to believe that a reinstall is necessary. They'd say the same. If only they told you more about sfc.exe

And so on.

Always check the Knowledge Base. Trouble is, you need to know how to search it, and oftentimes that's as hard as fixing the problem. But it might help. Else, ask here and wait a while.
