I have the "Windows did not start sucessfully, Safe Mode, Last Known Good Config, or Start Windows Normally" screen that keeps looping again and again. I've seen the problem a ton of times but I need help repairing Windows XP. I have a Dell and I have 3 dell disks (Applications, Operating System, and Drivers) So I'm going to try the repair, but the manual for the CD's says back up my data because this WILL delete my files. I really can't lose all these files, so what should I do?

Hello RedElement,

Welcome to GTG. Have you read thru the sticky on this topic?


Doing a repair install will not delete your files. A repair deletes the Windows files and replaces them. Not your files.
