Good evening, I've tried many different ways but still never was able to pass " \WINDOWS\system32\DRIVERS\iomdisk.sys "
window logo freezes midway / cannot reboot it in any of the safe mode / removed my zip drive, etc and it's still not working.
I dont recall recieving the computer with a start up CD.. think it was pre-installed in the computer. HELP :) forgot to mention it.. it's HP Pavilion 540n - bought it in 2002.

Try going into the BIOS and removing the ZIP drive from the list of boot options.

If you are unsure how to do this please post back and I will assist you further.

hello? can anyone here help me??? :)
Here's what I already did. Tried the safe boot - no luck, tried the safe boot with command - no luck... I removed the battery - hoping it'll do something magically.. still no luck..

My apologies EyesBlueDeaf,

however my PC was infected with a really bad malware and most of my data is gone. I only access the net for a few minutes each day and am busy re-installing windows as we speak. When I get back up and running I will try finding a solution to your problem. That will however not be today as I have other responsibilities that I need to carry out first. Real life sometimes takes over what we do here.

Use this link to recover your system. Choose the option Recovering during Startup, then, again, choose nondestructive recovery. Read carefully the instructions.
