I have an xp home editon computer. with an 8 gig harddrive. I have a secondary ide hardrive configured as a slave that I use to store norton ghost 9 backup drive images. I do a weekly base backup image and daily incremental backups . Not long ago my computer gave me an error screen on boot up that said that a recent hardware change or power failure may have caused my computer to shutdown unexpectedly and that I should choose to start windows normally or choose last known good configuration. No matter what option I choose on that options page causes the computer to reboot and then a very short blip of a blue screen and then right back to the options page again. No matter what I choose this loop keeps happening. I boot to my Norton CD and run my restore useing my backup images from the secondary harddrive and when the computer reboots it boots normally again. The machine will run normally and even reboot sometimes but then after a normal shut down the boot problem starts all over again.
Can anybody give me a clue as to what is causeing this aggrevating boot problem?
