Hi frazier1414,

Try this:
Open System Properties via Start > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > System
[ System Properties may also be opened using the WinKey+Pause key combination ]
Select the Advanced tab and then click Settings in the Startup and Recovery section
In System Failure section, clear the checkbox next to Automatically Restart
Click OK and OK to exit

Have you got recovery console installed?

Or use another util to load up the system Linux or a util like :

Then make a registry change, follow this to turn off the reboots:

frazier1414,


Try this - It will allow you to boot your machine from floppy and change the registry:

The FAQ should walk you through it
