how to Repair Windows XP

GlenAJ asked
Last Modified: 2016-04-18
For some reason, when I try to open XP I get a small screen
that says:  The system is not fully installed.  Please run setup
again.  I was hoping I could repair using Recovery Consul,
rather than in starting over again, even with a quick install.
The problem is that a password is required.  I recently reinstalled
XP, and don’t recall assigning a password.
