win xp sp3 was booted and working. I went away for about a half hour. When I came back it was stuck in the black "windows did not start sucessfully" loop. I tried "last good" option several times but it did not work. I also tried all the other options but they did not work. I disabled "auto restart" 3 times and got the following blue screen error messages:
STOP: 0x00000024 (0X00190203,0X8AAAA7A8,0XC0000102,0X00000000)
STOP: 0x00000024 (0X00190203,0XA172DE8,0XC0000102,0X00000000)
STOP: 0x00000024 (0X00190203,0X8A1B4670,0XC0000102,0X00000000)
When I tried to enter the Recovery Console the only option it gave was a format and reinstall.
I have Linux Mint on a dvd. I put it in and the computer boots to Linux and I can see my Windows files.
Is there a way to use Linux to fix Windows?
