Have you read about XP REPAIR INSTALL on google.com and tried that?
Now that you found a way to boot, at least you can backup what you can't lose, wipe the machine and install anew.
My system is an AMD64 Athlon 3000+ attached to a MSI
K8T Neo-V(VIAK8T800 + 8237/R chipset)mobo that has 800mhz CPU, 637 DDR, and an OS of Windows XP Prof.
My 'puter would not boot to windows, and kept sending me to the optional boot page(normal, boot with CD-rom)
etc. I have Microsoft's XP boot discs which I copied
from their site, so I used them trying to boot to my
desktop. It boots to the desktop finally, but b4 it does, I get:
INtel UNDI Pxe-2.0 (build 082) copyright (c) 1997,1998,1999, Intel corp. VIA Rhine II Fast Ethernet Adaptor v2.33(2004/01/05)
Client MAC ADDR 0013 D3 C5 DE 39 Guid 0002000300040005
0006000700080009 DHCP with a backslash line that spins
over a blinking cursor. After it spins to about half the page, it boots to my desktop. Thi is a bit long, but could not explain it shorter. How do I correct this, Please? It takes 5 to 7 minutes to boot up?
Thanks for ur help and suggestions.
