Debuglog needs deciphered

  1. Anyone here able to make sense of a debuglog.txt? I'm trying to figured out why I'm getting this STOP Error.

    As soon as I log into windows, it loads the desktop, and then like clock work, it reboots 5 seconds later everytime.

    Works fine in Safemode, no problems.

    Stop Error: 8E

    It's a registry problem. Try doing a system restore to before the problem started..

    I just reinstalled this machine a week ago, are you certain the registry could already be screwed up?
    I slipstreamed SP3, which I thought might be causing it, since SP3 has caused me other problems on other machines.

    Can you do a restore in safemode, if so I will try it?

    Update: Got the restore started in safemode, but when the computer rebooted, same error message when desktop loaded.

    anyway to remove SP3 from a slipstream installation, I'm thinking not?

    Thanks guys

    I have already done all of the above. I'm just going to reformat, and install XP with SP2 this time instead of SP3.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Wow you've done everything I posted?

    Ok then Re-install would definately be best
    Make sure to remove the Partition when asked

    Also, no need to create a new partition or format; Windows install will automatically set up the Partition and format to NTFS on a non-partitioned drive.
