WinXP Boot Up

by scott.heath In reply to WinXP Boot Up

I've read some info and it seems you have three ways to go.

1. Use a converter to access the laptop HD in a regular PC and back up your personal data. Then make copies of all the files in c:\windows\system32\config in a safe place. Then copy the files from c:\windows\repair to c:\windows\system32\config. Put HD back in laptop.

2. Abandon backing anything up, boot of the Windows CD, go to Recovery Console and copy the files from c:\windows\repair to c:\windows\system32\config.

3. Whether you try to recover data or not, option 3 is just to fdisk it and start over.

Hope this helps, feel free to let me know if you need anything else or any help.

Have you tried to access the 'Safe Mode' by hitting F8 between the end of the BIOS load and the start of the Windows boot up. This should then give you a window where you can choose to load in 'Safe Mode' or to load by approving each driver as you got, or to log whilst loading. If you try to load with logging and then try 'Safe Mode' when that fails you should have a log file that tells you which driver is giving you heartache.

When you get your system up and running via either Safe Mode, rebuild or a boot disk.

Go to My Computer >> Control Panel >> System >> Advanced tab >> 'Start Up and Recovery' section at the bottom of the window, click on the 'Setting' button. In the middle of this sub-window is the section 'System Failure', thethir option is 'Automatically Restart' decheck the box beside it. This will allow the system to start with minor errors and permit fixing after start up.

Hey, I know this may sound crazy but your system is tuffed anyway. If noone come sup with anything better try using a boot disk to access in DOS and then delete the lsass.exe file from c:\windows\system32 and then copy it in from another PC.

You could try booting without it at all, and try booting with it copied from elsewhere. This files is one that is changed in Win XP service pack 1.

First: do you have a 'LAPTOP' or do you have a 'NOTEBOOK'? If you have a Notebook you do not have a computer but an advanced version of the "Breifcase" Program hardware that I wrote & downgraded from NASA computers 'Carry-around Site'stuff 22 years ago and it is still dependent on mainframe interfacing to work properly or 'PC' (Portable Compter) interacting to work consistantly and at all with some appliances. If you have a 'Laptop'then you have a Computer and need to have the software, DOS forinstance, installed then set-up and the activation sequence initiated and run to completion; another option is to get the shareware 'INTERACTIVE OPERATING PLATFORM' and follow it out to do the total set-up installation and activation & then have an actual way of operating the computer and not the software - which seems to me operates the user and not the stuff!

Hello

Have a look at this page:

You can copy a file from the cd rom to your system32 folder.

assuming this is as you stated a boafide laptop then within the xp setup there is some provision somewhat hidden and misleading in the setup mode oin which if you follow step by step it will bring you to a point that asks you if you want to do a newsetup. answer YES then it will detect the existance of a current version. at this point it will ask you if you would like to attempt to repair. if you answer YES it will generally be able to repair it without having to wipeout all your previous system and data. has worked for me in several occasions but is definitely worth the shot after all the next step is to wipe and reinstall
