having some issues. original problem was that i would get to the windows log in screen and it wouldn't go any farther after selecting the user and pressing enter to log in. usually don't have to do this, so there was the first clue something was wrong. so i tried safe mode, and same thing. now i absolutely loath recovery console, so i tried running a repair using as os disk. i had forgotten that this had been an upgrade from windows 2000. so i finished the repair, and now i get just past the windows splash screen and a message comes up and then the machine reboots. tried safe mode, and same thing, but different message. i'm at a loss. i don't mind having to reload the os, but it's a friends machine and he didnt save any install disks from anything and it's set up exactly the way he wants it. does anyone know either a) how i can see what the messages are that are popping up (they go by so fast i can only read the first word. or b) is there a known issue with running a repair on an upgrade version of windows. I used a straight windoes xp pro cd. any help would be appreciated.
