The regisitry is corrupt. Try booting to 'last known good configuration.' I believe the option shows in the F8 options.

I think you should go to Repair INSTALLATION...not repair console.

To get to repair installation, do not press "r" on the first screen. Instead select, Install Windows XP...then on the screen where it asks you to format your drives, there'll be an option for repair installation...Do that...hope it helps ;)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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!
