Are you saying that your other working computer does not have Safe Mode working?
System Restore does not work at the Recovery Console
so your saying i should put the hard drive on a working computer as a slave drive and change the settings so that i can have access?
is it possible to reinstall windows xp on the existing hard drive without delete my files?
basically like over writing it
I have to log into my Recovery Console and 100% confirm
But it looks as though you're right. d@mn! All the times I've mentioned this
Anyway here goes...
Oh and Safe Mode Repair is here: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic108404.html#post638518
In case your other computer doesn't work in Safe Mode
Edit: Confirmed (doubled up basically) that System Restore cannot be run from the Recovery Console
Thanks WinXPert, I'll go edit a few posts now :/
for the safe mode repair how do i run that file ?
Yes, see here: Microsoft's Windows XP Professional Repair Install step by step
Forget the Safe Mode Repair file
That was a bit of confusion, I thought you meant in a working computer
i actually tried repairing it already but when it rebooted i still got the same problem
whenever i try to repair i get to the screen telling me to press "R" for another upgrade or press enter to do a clean install....when they mean clean install does it format my hard drive?
is it possible to put my hdd onto another computer as a slave and access the files from there?
I thought you had already tried that
But yes you can do that
And I answered that above as well (how to give yourself permissions on a working computer)
Note: I've been off and about editing posts that I mentioned System Restore
Here's what I've edited in:
Hmm, I seem to have a few of these bad posts :/
