ok I changed the bios setting to default and got the screen for entering Safe Mode

Clicked on Safe Mode and it starts loading a list of files then it goes to that "configuring updates Stage 3 of 3- 0% do not turn off your computer.

then laptop restarts itself

Apologies, insert the USB
Reboot the computer
Press and hold F8 until you get the press any key prompt
Then press a key and see if the USB loads

If that fails then try Safe mode with Command prompt

We will use an mobile operating system called xPUD, and a script called rst.sh to restore your computer.

Download http://unetbootin.so...dows-latest.exe & http://noahdfear.net.../xpud-0.9.2.iso to the desktop of your clean computer

  • Insert your USB drive
  • Press Start > My Computer > right click your USB drive > choose Format > Quick format
  • Double click the unetbootin-xpud-windows-387.exe that you just downloaded
    Posted Image
  • Press Run then OK
  • It will install a little bootable OS on your USB
  • After it has completed do not choose to reboot the clean computer simply close the installer
  • Download the following tool and save it inside the bootableUSB
  • rst.sh
  • Remove the USB and insert it in the sick computer
  • Boot the Sick computer
  • Press F12 and choose to boot from the USB
  • Follow the prompts
  • A Welcome to xPUD screen will appear
  • Press File
  • Expand mnt
