OK I tried fixmbr & it mentioned completed successfully. The prob is still there. I again tried fixmbr & again it mentioned invalid & non-standard that means its not able to fix it.
After fixmbr mentions completed successfully I typed exit, do I need to type save to save the new mbr?
Nothing seems to be the solution.
I was thinking of something.
As CD drive is not working I was thinking of copying my genuine XP CD into USB & do a clean install or upgrade install from inside the system i.e from inside the running XP system. Is this possible & can solve the prob?
The system is currently upgraded to XP SP3.
What differences Clean & Upgrade install will have?
I have genuine XP SP2 CD.
