After SP3. Cannot boot.

  gengiscant 19:27 09 May 2008

Just installed Sp3 from the windows update site and on clicking the restart now button I find I am in a continuous loop.
For some reason I get to the start windows normally or safe mode or last good etc etc and no matter what try I keep returning to the above.

I cannot get to safe mode or last good configuration.

I'm at a loss as to what to try to sort this out.

Microsoft should be thoroughly ashamed of the havoc they are causing and I predict this is only the start of it. click here

I sorry I wasn't very clear,no matter what option I try,it justs loops around again to the choices screen.

I've just Googled the problem and it seems I am not alone.

Thanks anyway.

Managed to find out a little more about my problem.
Stopped the loop and now can read the stop error.
Which reads the "bios is not fully ACPI compliant".
Error code is 0x000000A5

I think I'll leave this untill tomorrow to sort.

Going out.
