URGENT - used XP Professional disk to repair tablet version

I used an XP Professional disk to try to do a repair of an Tablet edition.  I am now at the setup point where it wants the volume license key, but won't take the original tablet key or the XP Prof. key that we have.  I also, just realized what I did and am now trying to recover my data before it is lost.

Do you have the Tablet disk? If you just are doing a repair and not a format/re-partition your data should be safe. You just may have some messed up Windows settings.

Yes, I do have the Tablet disk.  If I put that in will the setup use that disk?

I think you would have to boot to it and do a repair using that disk

Yes, thanks that did work - although there is still weirdness going on with the laptop.  When I right click on an icon, an installer for adobe starts running.
