When I try to boot into my old winxp install it crashes with a bsod stating something about a read failure to run chkdsk (thats gonna fix everything lol)

ive tried a repair install but its not listed as an option, also tried rebuilding the boot.ini then repair install still nothing

is there any way to update the files on my old install from a windows cd manually from the recovery prompt (dos (recovery console)) and if so which ones would i need to copy over or uncab and copy over?

oh, a quick clarification i didnt repair install because it was never an option (done it hundreds of times before and dont need a guide on how to use the windows xp cd)

this question is specifically what needs changing to make a k8 AMD xp install into a k10/10.5 install
