What Has Happened to the Windows Boot?
Posted on 2007-04-01
Been using an IBM ThinkPad 390X running XP Pro. Now, it won't boot up to the desktop. Instead of booting XP Pro, a text screen is displayed that says "ThinkVantage Secure Data Disposal 3". The next line displays "Date and time of execution . . . 12/17/06 22:01:31". The next displayed line says "Command eecuted . . . A:\SCRUB\SCRUB3..EXE /d=ALL /l=2". The next displayed line says "Return code . . . . . . 0".
When I press F1 during POST, the BIOS doesn't give me an option to boot from floppy or CD. Because Windows boot never happens, I can't press F8 to try safe mode.
What has happened to the Windows boot? Can it be restored?
