booting up to a screen that resembles the F8 screen but with less options.
It just asks me do I want to boot to Safe Mood,,Safe Mode with Network
support,,Last known good configuration and finally Normal Boot up. I think
there might be one other option I left out cant remember. But anyway it
keeps coming back to that screen no matter which option I chose. It will not
go past this screen. I tried to use the F8 when booting up and it did give
me the extended list of options and I tried several of them including
debugging mode but none worked. It always booted up to the screen I
mentioned and will not go past that. It is running WinXP with 128m ram and a
AMD 900 processor. I know, its older but it works. Or did till today!
Re: Odd Boot Up
My brother had this exact same problem over the weekend - the boot
sequence just kept going round and round.
We removed the drive and plugged it into another machine ( to verify
its working condition ) as a secondary hard drive in the hope of being
able to at least extract documents, but while we had access to the
drive we ran a drive health check.
No problems were reported - and when the drive was refitted to the
original machine, it booted as per normal.
If you can boot to a command prompt ( via the CD ) you might try
