Booting to XP Pro disk
Posted on 2011-09-26
I am working on a laptop running XP. It won't boot into Windows and just hangs at the Windows logo. When I try to boot to an XP Pro disk or other boot repair disk, it won't load either. The XP disk will start loading drivers and all that but gets stuck at "Windows is starting". I would like to get into the repair console to try fixboot and fixmbr. Then try a repair install if that doesn't work. I pulled the drive and did a chkdsk and a virus scan, put it back in and still the same thing. Not sure what to do except try another hard drive.
