the system cannot log you on now because the domain (computername) is not available.
Posted on 2010-09-07
I'm running windows xp pro on a workgroup and not attached to a domain. I started experiencing an issue today where when i try to login to the machine, i get the error: the system cannot log you on now because the domain (computer name) is not available.
Again this computer isn't nor has it ever been part of a domain.
I tried logging in as administrator with no luck. I tried booting to safe mode and no luck since it's asking me to authenticate.
i tried doing a last know good configuration.
I haven't done a system restore since I can't boot to windows and don't have a windows cd with me.
any suggestions on how to resolve this issue without doing a rebuild?
thanks in advance.
