How can I cancel XP setup?
Posted on 2007-11-27
I have a corrupted XP home install. When I try to boot to normal mode, I get a blue screen error.I can usually boot to safe mode. I've spent a load of time trying to resolve that error and finally tried a repair install. I thought it might fix the corruption. It didn't. After performing what I'll incorrectly call the "DOS" part of the install, it then wants to boot into windows to finish the install. The problem is when it boots to Normal mode, I still get the blue screen and when I boot to safe mode it says, "XP Setup cannot run under Safe mode. Setup will restart now."
How do I stop Windows setup without being able to get into Windows far enough to use msconfig or to edit the boot.ini?
