XP Media Center won't boot normally but does boot safe mode

  1. My HP media center running XP Media Center sp2 (nearly the same as xp pro)was working well, then one day stopped booting. I can get the machine to boot using safe mode with networking and then tried msconfig and selected Diagnostic Startup to get a clean start. This still won't boot properly. Any ideas on how I can determine what the problem is? (I have run chkdsk, and it found an area that it repaired, but I don't know where that was.)

    Note in Safe Mode I tried to run sfc /scannow but it would not run because the RPC server was not available. tried to run sfc /scanonce, but I don't think iti is working either.
