I am trying to recover and re-install XP to a netbook, and the recovery USB started normally, but then stopped with a message "Error Recovery Image Missing - Please Restart and Try Again"

I have restarted several times and it does not get past this point.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this issue?

Thank you

Sounds like the USB Recovery Image is not being recognized or the files you installed to the USB drive are missing or damaged.

Can you start the netbook?

Start>All Programs>Recovery Backup.
If all else fails - a USB Dvd drive can be used to install Xp - if you have the install Cd.

Unfortunately the providers (PC World) do not provide an install CD, Windows is pre-installed and you have to create the USB. First time I try to use and it doesnt work.Cannot reinstall from the partitioned HDD either. Will look at the website and see if that helps. Thank you

If there is no Recovery Partition and the USB is not working, then a USB Dvd drive and a new Xp install Cd - may be your only option.
