Windows XP Endless Reboot
Posted on 2004-04-08
I have a user who ventured to install a brand new printer on her own without informing anyone. I don't know how she did it, but somehow she damaged the Spooler Subsystem, and that's when she called me.
I tried to fix the situation by repairing the Windows XP installation. I ran the repair, and rebooted....and it's been rebooting ever since. It's stuck in an endless reboot.
I've tried copying kernel32.dll from the CD to the HDD, that didn't work. I've tried fixboot and fixmbr in the Recovery Console, and that hasnt worked either. The boot.ini on the disk looks fine, so any ideas as to why the endless reboot???
