XP Boot Loop
Posted on 2010-11-08
Computer with XP Home was infected with several viruses. After trying to remove them when we rebooted we kept getting the screen that said "windows unable to boot - click here to select safe mode...etc..
Regardless of what we selected it came right back to same screen. We ran repair, tried fixboot - all with no success.
We then decided to just upgrade the pc to XP Pro. Loaded fine. We went through the Windows update and rebooted. Guess what? Back in the same loop.
Tried repair / fixboot.. No success. We then ran Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 Boot CD. Found some viruses, and removed.
Still loops as described above. Short of reformatting the drive and starting all over - any fixes to this?
