    hi all,

    I was reinstalling windows xp home and it stayed in the same position for like an hour,
    so I had no choice but to either restart or turnoff. I did this and now I can even
    boot past the logo screen.
    I have tried inserting XP home disk but it does not have any previous version
    installed and only has the option to format the drive. GRR
    I tried safe mode, vga, last known config but all dont work .
    It seems that Windows/system32/config/system.log is the file (also get blue screen of
    death after trying recovery console, but hard drive is still in tact.
    Fortunately I have backed up most of my system. I would still like to get it back though.
    I havent got any servie packs so I cant turn of 'disable automatic restart..'


    I can obtain a professional xp disk as my xp home is only an 'upgrade' verison (whats
    the difference?), will this help?

    I also cant use recovery console as every time I select '1' it just restarts and
    I cant use the cmd prompt after it.

    I have checked my cables and inside computer, all seems intact.
    Reset bios as well

    Please help anyone, I have run out of ideas.
    Many advance thanks,

    ace

    I managed to fix this problem by pulling out all USB ports as it may not recognise them on startup but now I have a new problem:-

    Just before the Windows XP logo it shows an 'EXECEPTION error 00000006 (IRQL)'
    With the file Windows\System32\Config\System being corrupt.
