    I need to run SFC

    Windows XP is down so I used a BoodCD...

    When I go to Run it does not recognise the sfc command

    When I enter "cmd" into the Run box I get...

    X:\i386\system32>

    any suggestions ?

    Hi ... Your going to need to use your original disk with your operating system to perform such , did you type sfc /scannow ? Notice the space after the sfc space

    Does the " Run " command work at all or is it just when you try the system file checker ?

    Also have a view at this site , It has lots of stuff towards sfc
