Left my installation un bootabale and when xp loading screen finished was left with an xp screen with no logon accounts. I suspected SM disabled a vital service so looked under the windows recovery conole for assistence.
Installation main on the original C drive blue screens now nv4_mini.sys so instead decided to cut my losses and reformat.
the new installation thrown countless errors and unable to do XYZ file copying moving did how ever make a bootable copy.
I have managed to recover every file i need accept one IMPORTANT folder. It was made private.
currently i have 2 XP installations on the C/D drive
Installation 1 - wont boot + blue screens. Has Two admin accounts. One of them have managed to recover all files the other account folders was made private. so currently getting access denied in safe mode as well
installation 2 failed on countless files how ever allows me access to XP and both drives (even though one folder is access denied)
what are my options?
I am quite happy killing and reformatting every thing but need tis c drives files.
