Can anyone tell me where XP puts its installation files in the registry during a repair installation?
I need to disable the switch that makes it automatically restart after 34 minutes.
At the moment it is stuck in a cycle of "setup is now restarting" after it finishes loading the XP splash screen.
Safe mode also keeps resetting after loading as it says "setup cannot be run in safe mode".
The MBR is ok, and I have run a Chkdsk /r with no problems.
I really do not want to have to do a clean install as it seems it is just a temporary reset command written in to the start up files by the the installation process before being undone again on completion.
