Whejn trying to boot to Windows XP i get the message "System not fully installed, please run setup again". I have already looked at workarounds on this and they don;t work. The reason being that I can't boot to recovery console as the PC crashes and blue-screens during CD loading process.
Also, did a non-destructive system recovery (it's a HP machine), that seemingly completed but after restart the PC did the same thing again and came up with the same message.
I'm just running a memtest at the moment and will report if there have been any faults reported on that. In the meantime, any other ideas?
