    I hibernated my PC (running XP Home Edition) and on the next startup (and successive reboots) I got this error.

    "Process1_initialization_failed
    Restart the pc, blah, blah,
    Check new hardware or software (there is none)
    If problem continues, disable Bios, remove new hardware, enter safe mode
    Tech code: Stop: 0x0000006B (0xC0000033, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

    First of all, Safe mode doesn't work and shows the same error.
    After, I was done looking at this,I tried my recover cd, which generally offers 2 non-formatting recoveries + the complete format. However, this time only a complete C; Format was available.
    I'm opting out on that for now since I have a lot (I mean a lot) of data, which I'd like to keep, so I'd be extremely appreciative of anyone, who can offer me alternative advice on this issue.
    Microsoft refers to this error on XP in the context of Norton Goback. Goback was not installed.
    Much thanks to anyone taking the time.

    I don't know how that's done exactly. It's a Cicero (MSI) disk. I'll give it a try though.

    I think I may have to reformat. Do any hard-drive data recovery options exist for this kind of thing? If so please tell.

    This SFC option would be nice but I cannot even get into safe mode nevermind running a program from within xp.

    Just tried it and no success. I guess it isn't hard-ware related.

    OK Boot up using your windows XP in the CD drive... Try this first without changing any settings to see if the CD will be read Change the boot settings in the BIOS (F8 at the system screen at the first startup). Change boot option to boot from CD drive. F10 and reboot... let the CPU boot from the disk... it will ask if you want a new install, reinstall, or repair your current install, choose the repair current install... (forgive me if I am missing a step in here some where). There will come a point where it asks you choose 'R' to repair the installation. a DOS screen will come up and ask for the nmber of the installation that you want to repair, type the number from the install you want to fix... once this brings up a dos prompt type chkdsk /r and let it run.
