I had a previous post about a error popup about a Lexmark printer driver not being found.
So I used autoruns to disable it from the Logon section, then all "seemed" ok, so I deleted it.
Now I am unable to boot into XP. I have Win7 also on this computer and can boot into it fine, and can also boot into XP safe mode (I'm in that right now).

Nothing shows up (exceptions) in the event viewer except the drivers unable to load in safe mode.

I have tried chkdsk /r, fixmbr, bootcfg /default, (started to try bootcfg /rebuild, but was unsure of how to answer the questions it asked) fixboot, and system restore.

I enabled bootlogging, it is 31 pages, so will post the log up the the first few pages showing when the first driver failed to load.

Hope ya'll can help this dummy like you usually can! :thumbsup:

I am not sure what you mean about the option to fixboot.

The option rewrites the boot sector, if they option is available choose it and allow it to confirm the changes.

If I misunderstood your intial question please forgive me here.

You can also do a repair install, which should not remove your previous install of windows.

thought about that, but my oem HP recovery disc didn't seem to have that option.

fixboot is an option in recovery console. ran it with no luck...

Yeah you're right those OEM disks usually install a fresh copy of the OS and moves the old into a folder called Windows.old

Of course if worse comes to worse you may have to choose that option.

You will be able to recover most of your files, but you'll have to re-install all your programs again.

Actually, I got to thinking (you can take that in a good way or bad way... :thumbsup: ), and I believe if I use my HP OEM disc, and choose the Install option, it should lead me to the normal XP blue screen where I can choose to either repair or re-install. I haven't had a chance to try that yet, maybe tonight unless somebody knows for sure one way or the other.

Or... would it be better to use a retail XP SP1 disc? I was leery of that, thinking it might conflict with the OEM HP software.

also... since I have Windows 7 dual booted, doing a repair install won't affect the partition that Win7 is on, will it?

I would do what you were suggesting in your first paragraph, try doing a repair first. See where it ends up, it might actually fix the problem.

At the worst scenario, the install option, will offer to save your Windows folder as windows.old.

A full install without saving your original windows folder, will delete every thing previously stored on the hard drive.

Keep us informed please.

I was thinking that doing a full install, I could just choose the partition that XP is already on, since when I installed Win7 on the same machine, I was able to install it on a seperate partition. Right??? :thumbsup:

But I wasn't sure if during a repair install, if it would just look at a specific partition.

The repair option lists the partitions it finds when the repair option is selected, if there are more then one partitions with an OS installed, it will list what OS is on those partitions.

You simply choose the partition you want by selecting it from that screen.

That's what I thought, but just wasn't 100% sure.

I noticed you are an Ubuntu fan also...
Before my XP went wack on me, I was triple booting XP, Win7 and Ubuntu 10.04.
I'll have to reinstall Grub2 once I get XP back up and running, since running fixmbr cleared it, but that is no big deal, had to do it after installing Win7 already before and all worked perfect.
