Thinkpad R61 Lenovo -
Laptop will not boot to XP pro windows. Goes to the boot options sreen and when select to load windows it starts to load then loops to a reboot. I do not have CD's for the system. I used another XP service pack 2 install CD but when accessing the repair console the install CD cannot find any hard drives. I used the Recovery console for the thinkpad and ran all diagnostic tests and everything past. I cannot find where I can access a command prompt so I can run the CHKDSK on the system to repair the corrupted boot file. I sooner not use the restore the system from the Recovery until I see if the chkdsk works since the system has service pack 3 and other updates which are not restored and this may not fix the boot problem.
Any help on this would be appreciated.
