    @:stackz:

    1) sfc.exe doesn't accept my Xp-recovery-cd, but i've already corrected the path in the registry. now i'm testing with a copy of the I386-folder on a HDD...
    2) there's another important path for the "servicepackfiles" in the registry but that folder doesn't exist at all in my windows-folder (and not somewhere else) ?

    @arran:

    thank you too, i'll have a look at this app

    She doesn't accept it because your install disk and current svcpack don't match. With a retail copy you're OK, you can slipstream.

    Thank you. Is there any other tool that does the same job ? arran mentioned "MD's file and folder rules" (i couldn't find that anywhre) that sounds like protecting files and folders. But is there any other app like "sfc" that at first checks/verifys the integrity of window's system files ?

    Arran misunderstood. Long answer - NO. This or a clone is the guide you've referenced up above, correct? Again .. retail or OEM?

    GlobalForce, calm down, it wasn't my intention to ignore your post.
    I don't know if you call it OEM or retail, it's a "Fujitsu Siemens Product Recovery CD-Rom SP1a". Yes, the guide you linked to is the one i alrey went through.

    Now, if i get your right, sfc.exe would need a slipstreamed Win XP SP3 cd to compare with system files ?

    To help you understand, look this over. When it involves a non-retail disk, she gets complicated. Me, I got lucky. Nonetheless, this is the route to take for a functioning file checker. Ready and willing to invest time I'd suggest you head over to the MSFN boards and ask about the possibility of using nLite. The Dell page may offer enough clues as to which files are kept and which get stripped. I'm guessing it'll depend on how the given manufacturer, Fujitsu Siemans, has'em packaged.
