Hello Im having a problem with a friends computer…They brought it over to my house. Windows just keeps restarting. It gets to the windows logo screen then doesn’t load up windows and just keeps restarting..SO I pressed F8 on one of the restarts and tried safe mode, that wouldn’t load either just kept restarting. I did get it into windows once though. But no other times than that. I pressed F8 on reboot again this time I choose to disable the restart on system failure. The blue screen that came up read this…….

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

I do have my xp disk...Which I tried to format and reload windows...Still same problem...I put the windows disk in to go to the recovery console to run a chkdsk came up with these 3 options....
1: H:\MiniNT
2: C:\PRDSMIMG
3: C:\WINDOWS

What are options 1 and 2? Do I need them or is there a way of deleting them and starting fresh with a brand new copy of windows which I have?

I would also like to know what the "2: C:\PRDSMIMG" is for as I have it as a selection too. My "1: D:\WINDOWS" I would believe is the backup partition on the hard drive. I suspect that's the same for your "1: H:...." but im not sure. I have a "3: C:\WINDOWS" which I believe is my installation I'm trying to repair. I'm not getting far, I tried "EXTRACT E:(The DVD drive)i386\HAL.DL_ to C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32" which completed (Stopped at 50% a couple of times and took FOREVERRRRR !!! :yes: but finally completed) but did no good for the boot up. Also did a "CHKDSK C: /R to no avail.

P.S. I am aware that this forum post is quite possibly the necro of all necros :) .
-----I was compelled. I must know the answer to this question :) .
-----Please forgive my necroish ways for just this one occasion. Thankyou. Sincerely, Sɭɪɱ :unsure:
