I am working on a friend's computer. it crashed??? and he tried to restore and it ended up in a boot loop. No bsod. loops at the windows spash screen loading.
I made an image with acronis 10 and tried to do a restore with a retail then an oem mce 2005 dvd. with either one it boot loops when it gets to the point at which the main setup gui comes up. basically the blue screen loading phase of windows completes, it reboots then it boot loops.
I was hoping the repair install would straighten out his issue.
Any insight would be appreciated. The license coa says windows media center edition 2005 so i'm pretty sure I have the right restore cds.
