  • winxp sp2 setup is being restarted loops

    I cannot get into safe mode so i decided to do a repair
    but it kept crashing at the 34th minute
    is there anyway i can bypass this without reformatting losing data
    ive googled alot but most of it didnt work for me

    (ive heard boot 'fixboot' can lose data on the hdd)

    I think it could of been the vista style pack that did somthing to the system in the first place because i had a BSOD with 000000x7F i installed that program bootscreen aswell maybe it was that

    Have you heard of any win styles/ bootup screens to cause this type of problem it it uses ntoskrnl.exe right?

    I cannot run winternals EDR either
    could you give me a good bootup tool for copying files from one hdd to an other

    Thanks!

      Please don't double post.

      Have you tried taking the hard drive out of your computer and putting it in another working one to remove the files?

        At 34 minutes it is normal for the screen to go black. If it is crashing at that point, change you video card and try again.

            I believe it is installing the video drivers at this point. Drivers = software

            No, I am not sure changing the video card will solve your problem, but it is a pretty good option.

              I agree, it sounds like it could be a video card driver issue.

                      Should you remove what? What is the "it" you refer to?

                          It's restarting setup because it never finished it.
