My Windows XP installation is broke. After a few seconds of displaying the page with a bar containing the moving dots it reboots in an endless cycle.
I am going to try a restore using the instructions I found at:http://icrontic.com/article/repair_windows_xp
There is a point in these instructions where it branches depending on whether the processor has Intel’s XD. Since I cannot start Windows XP I do not have a way for Windows XP to tell me if my processor has this. All I have is the Recovery Console. Is there a way I can determine if my processor has Intel's XD bit using only Recovery Console, or any of the Linux Live OS disks?
I have a RAID disk pair that mirror each other. These show up as two different disks in the Recovery Console. Should the above repair procedure be done on both of them?
The DISKPART command shows that, although these two disks have always been in a RAID configuration, one of them has more free space than the other. C: has 103236MB free and
has 109119 MB free. Is this a sign that the disk mirroring is out of sync? If so what should be done about it?
