I have a computer that will not boot normally or in safe mode. The error message: "vgaoem.fon is missing or corrupt.
Microsoft provided a nice article: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=315338
, but it doesn't work exactly as they suggest. When I try to use the EXPAND command to take the file from the CD, I get a rude message: "Access is denied". The same thing happens when using the copy command.
Also, when entering the console, I did not get prompted for an admin password. Perhaps I do not have admin priveleges?
Could this have anything to do with attributes? I can browse the i386 folder and see that the vgaoem.fo_ file has an r attribute. I should still be able to copy or expand this file from CD, right?
I have tried this with both the Dell installation CD and with a regular Windows XP CD.
Thanks in advance!
