All right, in an attempt at reinstalling XP over my current XP installation has gone horribly wrong. I was having some problems getting Windows up, and could only boot in safe mode. So I toyed with msconfig and altered my boot options to where it automatically booted up in Safe Mode with Networking, so I wouldn't have to manually do so everytime. Well, I forgot that I'd altered this setting when I put in my XP cd and decided to reinstall windows. The installation gets about halfway through, and states that it has to reboot to finish. Of course, when my computer boots in Safe Mode I get an error saying that the Installation can't complete while in Safe Mode, and that it's going to reboot again. But since my boot.ini has been altered, it ALWAYS boots in Safe Mode. Now I can't boot up at all, as everytime I turn my computer on it tries to finish the XP setup process, with or without the CD in the drive. I've tried to boot off the CD again, which leads to the same result. I'm aware this is a pretty stupid situation I've gotten myself into, and ANY help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
