Long story short I was cleaning junk off my laptop which has Windows XP Home Edition on it. I use to have some viruses, etc on it but I cleaned all that off. I was still cleaning junk off like stuff I was never going to use or need again. So I ran Sfc /scannow with my Windows XP Home Edition CD in the drive to replace any system files that had any problems. After that I ran the Repair the Windows XP Installation from the WIndows XP Home Edition CD but after I did that I would get a black screen after the Windows loading screen. I don't believe Safe Mode was working either so I went back to try the same thing now I get STOP: 0x000007B after the Windows loading screen. Note: I had Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3 installed and Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2 on the CD. I wasn't the sharpest tool in the shed lol. Now the CD does say it has drivers on it I haven't tried doing anything with that. I ran chkdsk /r and fixboot on the Recovery Console but that didn't fix it. Next I tried to rebuild boot.ini on the Recovery Console bootcfg /rebuild and that didn't fix it. Also I found the boot.ini.backup so I copied it and renamed it to boot.ini after putting it in the C:\ folder. I did see some other .backup but I don't know if those have anything to do with it not booting up to Windows normally. Next I booted up to the Kaspersky Rescue Disk and ran a scan after updating the definitions. The scan results came up clean. The good news is I can still see the stuff I have on my laptop from the Kaspersky Rescue Disk or any Linux Live CD. At this point I do not know what to try next without losing the stuff I already have on the harddrive? I mean I am going to put what I want to keep on a external harddrive just in case if it does come down to reinstalling Windows XP Home Edition.
