    RE: windows error recovery

    Is the machine actually booting and this is coming up as an application
    error? Or does the machine just boot to the error and nothing else?

    If the machine isnt booting at all, boot off of media (if you have it) and
    run the Startup Repair option, it should fix most issues.

    RE: windows error recovery

    I am experiencing the exact same issue. I start up my machine, see the
    welcome screen and then I'm taken to the "Windows Error Recovery". I get only
    two options, Launch Startup Repair and Start Windows Normally. If I pick the
    startup repair option, I'm returned to the same screen after about 10
    seconds. If I pick the other option, I see the startup screen that just shows
    the progress bar with "Microsoft Corporation" beneath it. But eventually, the
    machine just restarts. I get the welcome screen and then the Error Recovery
    screen. I'm stuck in a neverending loop. Please help. How do I get out of it.
