Error loading operating system in Windows XP

When a user turn the computer power on, after running POST successfully computer jumps to load the operating system installed in the user computer's Hard Disk Drive (HDD). In case of Windows XP sometimes it appears that it shows an Error written "Error loading operating system".
This Error appears most probably, when a computer shutdown improper like power failure, etc. This cause the operating system installed format corrupt and thus computer fails to recognize the OS installed on HDD.
Unknowingly users install a new copy of OS and it caused them lost of their data, instead of installing a new copy of OS on your computer's HDD, It has a solution which is quiet simple and very less time consuming.
Just follow the steps below and you'll get your windows running again like before.

Step 1: Boot your computer with the help of Windows XP Disc (Try to use the same disc, the one you use to install your previous OS).

Step 2: when the installation wizard ask you these three options:
  1. Press 'Enter' to install a new copy of windows XP.
  2. Press 'R' to repair.
  3. 'F3' to quite.
     Select option number 2 "Press 'R' to repair". It will direct you to Command Prompt (DOS). And then just follow the instructions given that time appearing on your Display Monitor/LCD.

Note: Default cursor location on prompt starts from C Drive "C:\windows>_", so be sure to change the cursor location to another Drive like D, E drives "D:\>_". You can switch the Drive by typing "D:" and press "Enter" or otherwise drive scan will not run properly.

Step 3: Now when you enter into the D drive "D:\>_" type this command "CHKDSK(Space)C:" and press "Enter".  CHKDSK (Check Disk) command will start scanning your drive and will fix the corrupt format problems by itself.

Step 4: When the CHKDSK scanning completes, it will show you the current status of your scanned drive. After that just type "Exit" and then press "Enter", your computer will restart.

Now you can run your windows like it was running before on your computer.


NOTE: This procedure can also be use to fix same problem in Windows VISTA.

Please also note that if this procedure doesn’t fix your problem you can e-mail me at abid.hassan.123@gmail.com. And don’t forget to post your comments.

  40. Good post with lots of details. Good to read and understand. Hard disk problems can cause booting problem. If there is loose connection then one should remove the wire and plug it back into the hard disk again and it might solve the problem and you do not have to go to computer service center.
