Hi,

I encountered a previous problem on my computer detailed in this thread:

http://www.geekstogo...ul-t222133.html

Now I can't get out of the log in screen on my computer.

As noted in the thread, I have an ERUNT backup.

Thanks in advance.

This is more annoying than my first problem.

I guess I'm forced to make a BartPE CD, I think I figured it out, only problem is I need another XP comp (I'm on Vista right now).

Can I make a BartPE CD with this Vista comp if I put XP on it as well?

I'll just follow these instructions, wait for a reply, then go about making a BartPE CD on this comp assuming I can.


**Edit: On second thought, I'll wait and see if I can use another XP comp in the house. Sorry for posting but I'm eager to help fix my little brother's computer.**

Hey, I'm back...

So I decided to reformat the computer (funny how I ended up here but it was long overdue anyway) and wanted to know if the computer is ready to go.

My noobie questions:

-When I go to device manager none of the drivers have that yellow exclamation point on them so does that mean I'm set in terms of updating all my drivers? I updated the following in order: system software, chipset, video, audio, network. I think I did this right, but I don't really know.

-I reformatted with a OEM SP1 CD from another comp (managed to stop that 30-day activation thing with a crack), should I begin updating to SP2? (I believe not updating was the reason I got in this mess :) )

-Is there anything else that needs to be done?

Thanks in advance.
