Do you have your windows XP CD? If you do, I want you to put it in and turn on your computer. When you are given the message press any key to boot from cd...
, press a key and Windows Setup will start. At the first screen where you have to enter input, hit R
to enter the Recovery Console. Then you will have to hit 1
to log into your windows installation and then just hit Enter
for the Administrator password because it is normally blank unless you changed it. Once you are at the command prompt C:\WINDOWS I want you to type each of the following, hitting enter after each line:
- attrib -s -h -r c:\boot.ini
- del c:\boot.ini
- bootcfg /rebuild
Now type Exit
and take your XP CD out. Your computer will reboot itself. Post back how things are going.
