Bad Pool Header error on boot-up
Posted on 2006-05-11
Strange problem here:
PC running XP home, was all working fine until I had to re-format the HD.
PC was up and running again, connected to the net via a Netgear USB wireless modem - no problems
Did a Windows update, installed SP2, now the PC will not boot with the Netgear modem attached (it worked fine with SP2 before the re-format)
I can boot up using a Belkin wireless modem and it all works with no problems. All the other XP updates have been installed.
The error I get on boot up, before the windows logo screen appears is:
blah de blah de blah blah
Then does a memory dump and sits there doing nothing.
Aslo - if I allow the PC to boot up and then plug the adaptor in the screen goes blank then comes up with the same error message.
