Reboot loop due to power failure after installing windows updates.
Posted on 2006-06-14
I have a Win2K SP4 box that I have just performed Windows 2000 updates on. The updates installed fine, and I rebooted the box. I logged back in and everything was fine until I accidentally unplugged the PC :-(
On restart, it did a CHKDSK and found and fixed errors. Now it's in a reboot loop. It gets to the CTRL-ALT-DEL screen and then does a reset.
Safe mode is OKAY.
I have tried a Windows 2000 Repair, this didn't work.
I don't have any manually created Registry backups. I'm pretty sure had I not unplugged the PC the updates would have been fine :-0
