Emergency Recovery fails

[ Edited ]

One of the laptops in my company gave us multiple Windows and network errors after installing a UMTS-card. I deciced to go back to factory settings using Emergency Recovery. All seems to work well, RC Recovery starts up and formats the disk but after this it come with the error:
INF file txtsetup.sif is corrupt or missing, status 14.

What is going on anf how to solve this problem?

Re: Emergency Recovery fails

Try a different set of recovery disks?

Re: Emergency Recovery fails

Not possible, the recovery comes from a partition on hard disk.

Any other suggestions?

Re: Emergency Recovery fails

Sounds like the 'recovery partition is corrupted.
You will have an Operating system sticker on the back of the laptop. (Windows XP?) Obtain the correct operating system disk. (There are several - XP Home, XP Home SP1, XP Home SP2, XP Pro, XP Pro SP1, XP Pro SP2. The stickers are different colors) Reinstall the operating system with an XP operating system disk. You need to change the boot order in the BIOS to boot from the CD. Go to the notebook manufacturers website for the correct drivers for all the onboard hardware.

Re: Emergency Recovery fails

Alternatively, If it is an HP notebook your will be able to obtain a set of recovery disks for it from HP at a small cost.
