First off, yes, I was trying to boot to the CD/DVD drive and about half
the time it wouldn't do it. Then, it just went back into the loop and
would never get to windows. I finally got the recovery cd to boot but as
I said, the second time I got it to boot, the repair option was no
longer there. I finally just gave up and reinstalled, and now I have a
similar problem. The new installation worked until a few minutes ago and
now I can't get into Windows again. Its not even a loop -- just won't
boot. I have another bootable CD that I can use to copy files, etc., but
it now crashes the machine. Geez, I'm really getting aggravated here. I
will try again to see if I can get the repair option.
By the way, I am wondering if the new service pack might be guilty of
some crime as I had just installed it.
I also wonder if my hard drive is going bad. Or is it my Ram? Or does
the PC just go out the window?
And the sfc / scannow command. Where does one use it? From a command
prompt in Windows? (Not if I can't get to Windows). Or what?
