I have in my possession a hard drive with Windows XP Pro 64-bit. The OS resides on an NTFS file system partition of half of a 500 Gig hard drive. It is part of a custom built system and has had only been formatted once. This installation has been active for about six months. It did encounter a virus which infected the System Restore files and thus were cleared via safe mode. Since that time Safe Mode has been inaccessible. Consistently stopping at the acpitabl.dat file.

However, when booting Windows normally, the system boots with proper speed and with no apparent issues and continues to work for days on end.
It is only when booting into Safe Mode that any issues become apparent.

I am curious as to any solutions this fine community may have to offer. I received great information from the Hardware group and hope for the same here.

System hardware includes:
AMD Phenom Quad AM2+ Black Edition
Gigabyte MA790GP-UD4H
G.Skill Memory
Corsair 1000W PSU
Windows XP Pro x64

Thank you Louis, nice seeing you again.

Interesting solutions, I will investigate them.

A bad CMOS battery would be odd considering the age of this Motherboard and I do not have a RAID array set up, though I will check these accordingly.
