Windows Does Not Boot
Posted on 2008-10-01
After installing SP3 and rebooting the pc, I get the following:
windows did not start successfully. a recent hardware or software change might have caused the problem.
This is what I tried and which did not work:
Last Known Good
Safe Mode- Just goes back to the above message
Recovery Console- Ran CHKDSK /P R
Any ideas restoring the system without having to reformat or reinstalling Windows completely. I do not want to lose files.
