So you can choose between two OS's? What EXACTLY does it say AFTER you type in bootcfg /rebiuld?

"Scanning all disks for Windows installations.

Please wait, since this may take awhile...

The windows installation scan was successful.

Note: These results are stored statically for this session. If the disk configuration changed during this session, in order to get an updated scan, you must first reboot the machine and then rescan the disks.

Total identified Windows installs: 1

[1]: C:\WINDOWS
Add installation to boot list?"

All that stuff again..

You did the fixboot right? That's where I'm figuring your last question about " about writing into a new bootsector to the partition C:" came from.

If it said it was done successfully, then yes, type exit and remove the cd and let the computer reboot and see if you can get to windows. If the window pops up saying do you want to boot windows in safe mode, or last known configuration that worked, etc... choose Start Windows Normally.

Unfortunately you don't have an XP cd. I suggest you get one from a friend and do a Repair Installation using the link in my signature. Make sure you have a product key sticker for xp home on the bottom of your laptop.

You could try booting into SAFE MODE (tab F8 about once a second when the laptop is booting up until you're given the option to boot into safe mode). Then doing a SYSTEM RESTORE (START-->ALL PROGRAMS-->ACCESSORIES-->SYSTEM TOOLS) to a point when you remember the computer working properly and see if that can't get your laptop to boot completely.

I used to have this same thing happen on my desktop, BSOD right before the Welcome screen and then a fast reboot before I could read the page. It hasn't happened since I installed & ran Registry Mechanic. Cost $25 if you want to fix anything, here's a link if you want to try it.
