Win XP Boot Failure

  greenkeen 21:30 16 Nov 2005

I have a problem that I cannot boot into win xp. My machine is set up as duel boot with win 98. It boots into win 98 with no problem. If I press F8 and select 'use last good config' the computer locks up. I cannot use sys restore and it is driving menuts as I acnnot access certain info on a drive as it is in NTFS.

Have you tried the Recovery Console?

If you didn't install it from CD after setting up XP, you can run it from the CD (on the blue setup screen that appear when you boot from the XP CD).

Don't ask me how to use it though! Luckily I've never really had to resort to it when all else fails.
