Hello,
I have been doing much searching to reslove the issue but no luck. My system is Windows Xp Pro. I had recently installed VMware player 3.1 and after finishing the installation it had prompted me to restart and when I did the computer went through the boot sequence normally but after the windows logo disappeared I was just left with a black screen. I have tried safe mode with the same results. I have tried to run a repair from the Windows CD and it will not load. The only way I can get a prompt is booting to Windows system recovery option.
I am left at the C:\windows prompt and a short list of commands available. I was wondering if there is a way to use system restore without booting windows? Any other possible solutions are welcome as I am stuck. Also any other info that I can provide please let me know.
Thanks,
Tom

System manufacturer and model?

Can you boot into safe mode?

What about Last Known Good Configuration?
