There is no need to have two threads related to the same thing, espcially when both have been started by the same user. Pick one and use that thread. Thank you.

Simply use the "last good boot" option available by pressing F8 after the mem check (during early boot-up).

Good grief Charlie Brown
lol I was just reading your other thread & poof....gone. Like madmatt said once is enough.

Anyway I have looked in my C:\ drive & there is no sys file there.
You could try doing a 'repair' with the xp cd at bootup.

Try madmatt's suggestion first. That should work. ;)

u have two options as I see it.

1. boot up with the XP CD in the cd rom drive, your looking for a repair option.

2. as soon as the bois screen gets done press F8, boot up in safe mode if possible, if not try last good config.

Good Luck, I'm the one who deleted your other post, and I'm fixing to delete the new one you did as well.

Only post one thread, please.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
