automated recovery disk
Posted on 2014-02-17
I have 2 computers running windows xp. One will not boot to Windows. I have tried all the start in safe mode, start in last configuration, etc. choices and just get the blue screen telling me that "A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer . . . 0x00000024, (0x00190203, 0x8a987670, 0xc0000102, 0x00000000."
I have the original operating system disk that came with this Dell xps400, but it won't boot from it. When I try to boot from a cd, it asks for the Windows Automated Recovery Disk. I don't have that. Can I make one from the other computer running XP which works and use it to boot up the problem computer?
All I want to do is download files from the crashed computer to upload onto a brand new Asus (running Windows 8.1). That's all. Then, the old computer can be retired, given away, etc.
Any help, please?
