My windows xp pro can not boot into normal or safe mode. I tried booting from a boot disk to run the system restore from the command line. With some exploration I found that it has to be run from a 32 bit mode like safe mode w/ prompt. Since I can't get into that mode, is there a utility or or something on the cd that will let me run the restore? The recovery console from the cd lets me see the restore exe but will not run it.
Please help or if you know of a utility let me know that as well
-one final thing, is there a way to back up the info saved in system restore? The thought being I could do a repair install, add my backed up Sys restore info and then from windows restore to an earier point.
