I installed some updated drivers and now I simply cannot get windows XP to start (even in safe mode!)Does anyone have an idea that will allow me to get into windows so that I can use system restore

Hi Agabus

There is a possible way you could start windows xp is to try and repair it with the orginal disk with the repair program. Also have you tried Last Known Configeration to see if that lets you into xp.

Mat2, sadly I did try last known configuration, and no it still would not let me in! To add insult to injury, brother in law has taken the original XP cd to france (left me his useless software) so I cannot even load XP from the cd. Stuck till he returns from france I guess. Never mind will have to use my laptop till then

If XP will not BOOT do you get any error msg's?? If yes what are they..

Do you get an "Invalid Boot.ini" or "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:"
