View Full Version : Is XP Repair on the Upgrade Version of XP?

...by this I mean is there a repair area in the update to XP from 98SE?

Can one run XP repair there or do we need to use the full-install disc instead?

:confused: a buddy has the upgrade disc and not the full install and wants to know what to do. .

dunno .....never tried......but.....stuff in the repair disk and go to the usual 'install xp' options......then IF if gives you the repair option you have your answer......if not........ummm..you could try with the full cd.....

Its there, The upgrade CD is exactly the same as the full edition apart from it looking for an earlier version.

Heck, you can do a full install from the upgrade CD......
