When I put in my xp pro cd, all I get is start in safe mode, restart normally etc... I do not see an option to hit "r" for repair. I am not getting the ntdlr message any more. I am just in a vicious cycle of start in safe mode... restart normally etc...

Please help. I don't want to ruin the whole computer.
