Delete the Repair directory


If you delete the %systemroot%\Repair folder, you will
not be able to:


  • Install service packs.

    Service Pack Setup could not find the Setup.log file in your
    repair directory.
    .


  • Create an Emergency Repair disk

    Repair Disk Utility could not copy all files to the Emergency
    Repair Disk. One or more files were not found.

    Sam._ , Security._ , Default._ hives and the SETUP.LOG which are found in the
    Repair folder are missing.


The only solution is to do an inplace upgrade of NT.
