Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete
Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then from system tools, run disc defragmenter.
Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD and Windows File Protection will show a blue onscreen progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot
If you do not have an XP CD you can borrow a same version as was originally installed XP CD, if you downloaded SP2 then you need an SP1 XP CD
Click start then run, type chkdsk /f /r then press enter, type Y to confirm for next boot, press enter then reboot.
Windows will appear to load normally then either the monitor will show progress or the screen will go blank, do not disturb this.
This will take an hour or so before it gets to the desktop

Hi ozqood, Welcome to geeks to go.
My Super Micro P4SAA based computer is also now stuck in a never ending Reboot Loop. A New HDD is only recognized if it's not Jumped At All and it's GAME OVER when a fresh Installation hits the "Corrupted DMIO.SYS file" message. Setup has failed.
My Entire Computer (costing a few Grand) is now Junk.
All RAM is good, HDDs are good, CPU is good, Cables are good. I'm suspecting a faulty controller or other Motherboard component perhaps, although the BIOS Setup Menu detects the peripherals just fine.
I removed the BIOS battery for 40 seconds to clear it...no difference.
Can someone Please HELP ? Thanks
Please start your own post and someone
will help you with it.
