XP repair installation is stuck in restart loop
Posted on 2009-05-18
I had to do a repair installation on an XP machine. The installation went well, but when the computer restarted to boot into normal windows, a blue information screen appeared stating "Setup is being restarted..." It goes through the whole installation again, reboots, and I get the same restart screen. It's now stuck in this loop.
I've run memtest through 7 passes, with no errors. I've run checkdisk with no errors. I've used the repair console to run fixboot, which didn't work. I'm still stuck in the restart loop and out of ideas.
