        Hi mightypecan
        It is possible to run sfc /scannow anyway
        It is just that you will have to skip/ignore every time it hits a file that it isn't sure of (this is usualliy from the updates of SP2 and SP3) and if the problem is related to one or more of of these updated files, it probably won't help to run it. On the other hand if one of the original files that aren't updated is damaged it might help.
        You may have to click ignore very many times.
        It should be possible to slipstream the SP2 and or SP3 into your i386 folder and then use that in the sfc command.
        Cheers

        I can't find it anywhere...did a search in the registry and tried to manually locate it with no luck.

          I already have SP3 slipstreamed on the CD, so shouldn't the folder I copied to my HD have the SP3 files?

            Hi, mightypecan,

            You may have to make a new key and point it to where you've stored your i386 folder. BACK UP YOUR REGISTRY FIRST!

              Hi everybody,

              If you have SP3 instaled and Windows is updated to recent, adding the following registry string value:

              C:\windows\ServicePackFiles
              (taking into consideration that the boot drive is C:)

              to item Name:
              HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup\ServicePackSourcePath

              may solve the sfc /scannow issue.

              Please check if the ServicePackFiles folder is in windows directory.
              _______________________________________________________

              If you don't have it in the registry (as mightypecan), follow the creation below:

              Right click on Setup=>highlight New=>click String Value on the right menu=>type ServicePackSourcePath instead of the created {New Value #1} box=>click anywhere=>right click on ServicePackSourcePath=>click Modify=>type C:\windows\ServicePackFiles=>click OK

              The result should look like something like that:

              Name...............................................Type..................................Data
              ______________________________________________________________________________

              ServicePackSourcePath......................REG_SZ.............................C:\windows\ServicePackFiles


              Restart the PC to make sure that the registry is read.

              Cheers.

                I created the entry, and shutdown, then booted the computer...since I can not reboot. Nothing new...same message regarding the Windows XP Professional Disc.

                    If I knew anyone who had one, I would. I'm in a city and only know a few people, so unfortunately that isn't an option.

                      Hi again, mightypecan,

                      Here is a file I made for getting my SFC working. I've added amendments to suit you:

                      SFC /Scannow Error
                      When you install Windows from a CD that has had a Service Pack streamlined into the installation files, and you run Windows File Protection's DOS commands, such as "sfc /scannow" it requests the original CD.
                      You insert the CD used to setup Windows but instead of accepting that disk, it repeatedly requests that you "Insert your Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2" CD.

                      To enable my SFC /Scannow.

                      BACKUP YOUR REGISTRY FIRST!

                      Copy your Windows Setup CD to C:\ and Name it: WinXP.

                      ( I have copied the whole CD as I also use it for my BartPE CD, but you only need to copy the i386 folder)

                      Open Registry and navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup.
                      There will be a list of strings there including SourcePath. Give it a value of C:\WinXP ( Or whatever you've named it ).

                      ( If it isn't there, create it )

                      Right-click on a blank part of the R/H section under the list and select New > String Value.

                      Name it ServicePackSourcePath and give it a value of C:\Windows\ServicePackFiles.

                      ( Check to see if you have that ServicePackFiles folder in C:\Windows )

                      Right-click on a blank part of the R/H section under the list and select New > String Value.
                      Name it ServicePackCachePath and give it a Value of: C:\Windows\ServicePackFiles\ServicePackCache

                      ( Again check to see if you have this ServicePackCache folder in C:\Windows )

                      Type: SFC /Scannow into Run.

                      This copies files from the I386 folder into the .dll cache.

                      ===================================================

                        That seemed to work Ted, however my problem of rebooting/booting is still present. (same jumpy screen on graphics/video.)

                        All that happened is a dialogue mentioned checking hidden files to see if they're intact...after a few moments, it went away. This was after the status bar filled up.

                          First of all, let me knock on wood....

                          I began looking through my drivers, and realized the NVIDIA nForce 410 chip on my cpu didn't have a driver assigned...could THIS have been the problem? I also, just for the heck of it, picked up the latest driver for the NVIDIA GeForce 6100. After the installs I was able to reboot...which has been known to happen on occasion of some updates. So far, so good when I tried to boot up today...I'll keep my fingers crossed! If this doesn't work, I'm thinking BIOS...but problems with graphics/video when I can't boot properly does logically seem like a graphics issue...don't you folks think?

                              After nearly a week...and absolutely no changes made, it's doing this crap all over again. I tried re-installing the video drivers, no luck this time. It shut-down fine last night, but then today when I tried to boot, it would only post and do nothing else...continuing to run (spinning up at max speed) while the monitor was in standby mode. I then had to manually shut the modem off, then turn it back on. This time it did boot, but with the same jumpy, flickery mess as before. It doesn't work to do a recovery...went back a few days with no luck.

                                mightypecan, that must be really more than irritating.

                                Did you try the latest DirectX from MS?
                                http://www.majorgeeks.com/DirectX_9....ble_d2924.html

                                One more thing, I may have missed you, but did you also try chkdsk /R from command prompt window?

                                The other thing is if you have purged the content of C:WINDOWS\System32\Dllcache before you did sfc /scannow ?

                                Cheers.
