  1. xp home sp2 hangs at boot screen(did vista couse it?)...

    (sorry it is boot screen)Now i have vista rc2 on my computer and it works perfect. I have vista beta 2 earlier. After rc2 xp didn't boot. Or wait i give you the order:

    1.installed vista rc2...
    2.xp hanged on windows logo and animated blue bars (boot screen)...
    3.i choose safe mode, it opened.
    4.i used system recovery...
    5.it gives the error something like i couldn't do it BUT it booted in normal mode... I thought it was a one time thing... i was wrong.
    6. it is not booting in normal mode, just safe mode.
    7. I used msconfig, i disabled all, disabled some, nothing worked.
    8. i used /sos option and i saw my pentium d and 1 gig ram information and nothing happened after this, no error no restart, infinite wait....

    So i have safe boot so can we fix it? And this is a xp home sp2 with vista on second partition...
