Unable to load Windows. Error message The Endpoint Format is Invalid

By 4U Computers Support ·
Does anyone have any advise on how to solve this problem.
The computer has windows XP Hm. When powering on it starts to load windows (the Windows screen never appears) but then displays a black screen witn a msgbox with the error "The Endpoint Format is Invalid". Clicking on OK or closing this msgbox reboots the computer.
Trying to boot to safe mode produces the same error. I have tried to use the Windows XP Restore disk but part way through checking the system the screen turns black and I am left at a dos prompt.
I can boot from a boot disk and get access to the C:\drive. C:\drive is Partitioned.

I hope this is the right place for this query.

Unable to load Windows. Error message The Endpoint Format is Invalid

by saqfrd In reply to Unable to load Windows. E ...

An endpoint identifies a particular server instance (or address space) on a host computer in a distributed computing environment. A distributed (RPC) application has generated badly-formatted endpoint identification information.

Solution :-
To work around this issue, restart your computer in Safe Mode. To restart your computer in Safe Mode, press F8 when the computer starts. Then, when the computer is in Safe Mode, add the System Pages entry to the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management
To add this registry entry, follow these steps:

1. Log on by using an account that has administrative credentials.
2. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
3. In Registry Editor, locate and then click the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management
4. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD value.
5. Type SystemPages, and then press ENTER.
6. On the Edit menu, click Modify.
7. Click Decimal, type 31000, and then click OK.
