It will get as far as a black screen with the yellow loading bar (i use Vista), stays there for q couple of minutes and then a blue screen flashes up really quickly then it restarts itself
When it comes back on, it gives me the options to repair, or start normally. Starting it normally repeats the above process, and repairing it always ends up on a blue screen which says a problem has been occurred. The only notable message from it is "Technical information: *** STOP: 0x00008086 (0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)"
I'm also unable to start in Safe Mode or load the Last Known Good Configuration
