I am having a problem with sfc /scannow,I have XP home SP1,upgrade from 98se, I run scannow and I am told that "to run properly files required by windows must be copied to the DLL cache. insert your windows xp pro sp1 cd". This I can`t do, having xphome, I have tried my xphome disc and win98se and each time I am informed "please insert correct disc" ie win xp pro...any one help please ?

You may be able to run it from a hard disk location. A mininum of 4 registry entries (SourcePath and ServicePackSourcePath) contain pointers to where the files are. They are either in a hard drive folder (i386), on an optical drive or possibly both. Problems can arise when drive letters have been changed after the initial install, e.g. adding a new drive or implementing a dual-boot system will not update the registry pointers to the i386 folder. It's worth reading this click here particularly if you only have a recovery CD and this Microsoft site click here
