How can I restore my system using an Automated System Recovery (ASR) backup?

A. If you experience a core-OS corruption in Windows XP and you've created an ASR backup, you can use the ASR backup to restore your system by performing the following steps:

  1. Boot from your original XP media.
  2. If prompted, press a key to boot the system from the CD-ROM.
  3. During the text mode portion of setup, press F2 to initiate an ASR restore.
  4. When prompted, insert the ASR 3.5" backup disk and follow the onscreen instructions.
