I posted over on the XP forum http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/520249/dilemma/ about being stuck in a reboot loop. Safe mode or using XP Pro disc not happening so booted into Linux on a memory stick to restore older registry files.
Still no good but anyway, there is nothing on the PC I want to retrieve as such, we just use it as a Minecraft server.
I know nothing about Linux but was wondering if I formatted the HD or some other drastic measure, would the XP disc work then? Or, more appropriately for this section of the forum, how would I do this with Linux if I went down this route?
