error on boot: we apologise for the inconvience but windows did not start successfully a recent hardware or software change might have caused this if your computer stopped responding restarted unexpectally or automatically shut down to protect your files and folders choose your last known good configuration:

1. boot in safe mode
2. boot in safe mode with networking
3. boot in safe mode with command prompt

any option i choose it goes to boot screen comes up and restarts and the same error as the one above comes up.

You are probably looking at a reinstall/full recovery scenario here. BUT if the Recovery Console is an option for you and you are persistent and resourceful you might effect a repair.

If the recovery console has not been installed, AND you have a Windows CD, you can reach it through booting with the CD.

If you can get to the Recovery Console you might try the directions here:

Pancho, the reason why your "microsoft" links won't open is because you copy/pasted them in "truncated" form (that's when you see "..."in the path). Copy them directly from an address bar. I will delete your additional posts.
