I hope I am in time and you have not done the clean install.
I hate to have you do all that work when we can avoid it.
I have been talking with Grinler about your problem and he has an idea to find out what is causing the crash when booting to the normal mode.
So open up a new topic for this, PM after you do that and I will PM Grinler.
Tried this and it failed. Got the following error:
