Windows Vista 64-bit won't start up.
Posted on 2011-03-11
Toshiba Satellite notebook. Windows Vista 64-bit won't start up. Endless restart loop.
I actually get the mouse pointer briefly in both Safe and Normal modes, then the restart. I put the drive in an adapter and ran CHKDSK on another machine. Changes were made to the uppercase file (?). Ran a full CHKDSK /f /r using the Vista DVD on the laptop. No problems found.
System Restore says no restore points are available. Frustrating, since I suspect the points are there somewhere.
Is there an in-place install like in the good old days of XP?
Any other advice?
