I am using a Windows XP Home machine and having some issues with it.
When i started it up it went to a point before saying:
File is missing or corrupt: C:\Winnt\System32\Drivers\Pci.sys
which i fixed by following the resolution here -> http://support.microsoft.com/kb/319136
then, when i booted the next time, i got the error:
Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: System32\Drivers\Ntfs.sys
so i did the resolution steps here -> http://support.microsoft.com/kb/822800
and now when i start up the pc it goes to the screen that gives me the option for Safe Mode, Last Known Good, or Start Windows Normally.
i select any of the three, it goes like it will boot and then a blue screen flashes on the screen (too quick to read what it says on it) before the PC just restarts itself and does the same thing again... it will just loop and never boot to xp.
obviously something has gone wrong somewhere, and i am hoping i can resolve this issue without having to do a fresh installation of xp.
