I have a Dell Inspiron 700m and the other night I was uninstalling a
Korean language support on my computer and when I restarted I got the
following message: Windows could not start beacuse the following file
is missing or corrupted windows/system32 and it says that I can repair
it if I put the windows xp cd in and push r.  The thing is my windows
xp home edition cd is on the other side of the country from me, I'm on
winter break from college, and someone is bringing me their windows xp
professional cd.  I was wondering if I could repair it using another
person's CD and if it would work using professional instead of home
edition.  I tried to do the thing where you can restore your system
back to a specific date but that did not work because my windows won't
even start at all.  If anybody can help me I would appreciate it soo
much.  Thank you.

Re: System32 file

Surely I can tell you, using another Windows XP CD(even it's a Home
Edition one) is OK, for these CDs are almost all the same, the only
difference is the CDKEY label,

Press F8 while your Windows is trying to startup, and there should be a
menu shown. Select the item "Last Good"(it should be that, I think),
and see if it will work. Or try to get in the Safe Mode, if it does.
Furthermore, you can try to repair your system with a Windows
PE(Preinstallation Edtion), that may help you lots.
