XP won't boot, Huge problem
Posted 19 November 2006 - 08:50 PM
set the default, hit f10, hit "enter" in response to question do you want to exit, not sure when to hit y and enter.
tried it two different ways
got the Coompaq splash screen for a couple seconds, then what loks like a DOS flashing curor for maybe 3 seconds, then it cycled back to the intial screen I get "We apologize for the inconvenience..."

went to exit option
found the load default option there, selected that one
got a question: load setup default?
then selected: exit and save
got query: Save config changes and exit?
then it rebooted, got the compaq splash screen then followed by what loooked like maybe the DOS prompt for a couple seconds
then back to square one.

None of my friends had XP home, all have XP pro.
So I ordered OEM receovery discs from HP. Arrived today.
Just tried loading them, I get the R, F or Q option.
Entered R, took me to the Compaq recovery console,
asked if I wanted to try the windows recovery first, said yes, took me ot Compag recovery which tells me that I'll lose all data files which i really want to avoid.
How do I get to the command prompt to do the other things you suggested
