I have an HP XPh laptop that won't boot up. I tried the XPh cd (for the recovery console) and at the C:\ typed dir and hit enter.... after about 45 secs it showed me "Directory of C:\" for about 45 secs and then
An error occurred during directory enumeration
I typed Help and got a list of commands - fixmbr and fixboot both came to mind so I tried both fixmbr and fixboot ( I didn't reboot in between?????)both appeared to work...rebooted - no progress
Any Ideas? Bad HD? Anyway to recover without wiping the drive and re-installing?
