Hi there
Our hard drive on our Windows XP home edition PC has crashed big time. It won't reboot windows under any circumstances. Using the Dell disk supplied with the PC I have tried the advice in this article above, but after pressing F8 on the licence agreement it goes straight to a screen which starts off 'BAD_POOL_CALLER' and so on. I have tried a slipstream disc and end up at the same screen. Everything I do always come back to this screen. Is there anything else I can try? Thanks for any advice.
