View Full Version : Windows XP vs me :)



30-11-2001, 01:30 PM
The me in the title may be misleading, I'm actually referring to myself :)
The problem began yesterday, when after clearing linux from my master boot record, Windows Xp decided to load only half way, and then crash.
I still have access to windows 98, but I'm unsure of what I should do to fix.

I'm not able to reinstall right now, because I've lost my product Key, and Microsoft should be getting back to me in the next day or two. Does anyone else know of any other option to repair my Windows XP installation?

Booting from the XP Professional CD gives me the option to go into a repair mode, but it asks for my admin password, which after I type, I am told it is incorrect.

Any other suggestions - I don't like Win 98 :)

Cheers in advance,
Jonathan Giles

Howzabout an error message?

sorry about taking a while to respond.
The Error message is as follows:
autocheck program not found - skipping AUTOCHECK

it then goes to another screen saying:
STOP: c0000021a {Fatal system Error}
The session Manager Initilization system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0xc0000034 (0x00000000 0x00000000).
The system has been shut down.

This error started after i did a fdisk /mbr and also (and this is what caused it I believe) installed powerquest bootmagic.

Thanks alot if you can help,
I'm gonna post this again so it's more recent,
