Thanks for being there. I have a 2-year old Sony Vaio laptop - VGN AW4 ZRF, with an ATA Toshiba MK5055GS internal Hard Drive.
Yesterday, instead of booting normally, it would start to load Windows 7, suddenly it would show a quick "Flash" of the blue screen, and then re-boot...again and again.
I tried all the usual Win 7 Console Repair tools, all the diagnostics, and it was giving me this:
" Root Cause Found:
ACLs on file C: \Windows\system32\slui.exe are not proper.
Old Value = 0x1f0ldf
Repair Action: Access Control Repair
Result: Completed successfully
Error Code = 0x0 "
When I tapped F10 on starting my system, it took me to the "Edit Boot options" Screen
and it said: Path: \Windows\System32\winload.exe
Hard Disk ( a few numbers)
I found in this site a reference to this "MININT" thing and I deleted that section of the code,
so it just read : [/NOEXECUTE=OPTIN]
And low and behold, Windows started, as normal, booting to an old Norton Ghost image I had installed after formatting C: after getting nowhere for 2 days.
BUT....the same problem is happening every time I re-boot, the MININT thing is re-appearing and bringing the blue screen and not loading Windows.
Can someone please show me how to stop this happening?
