I tried upgrading a Windows 2000 machine to Windows XP, and everything seemed to be fine. However, after it installed the OS, the computer has refused to boot to the OS at all. It gets to the screen where you can go to the last good boot of Windows, but when I try to go to that, or start Windows normally, or even try to go to safe mode, it doesn't work at all. It looks like it's about to load the OS, but reboots itself. This does this when the XP CD is in the drive, and also when it's not in the drive. I have absolutely no idea what happened, and just hope that nothing bad has happened. Anyone have any solutions?
P.S., During installation, it said that a file called "Viaide.sys" was not found, and I tried looking for it in its proper folder, but I couldn't find it. Does that have anything to do with my problem?
