XP stops loading during boot

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.perform_maintain (More info?)

Hi!

This problem occured for the first time after i decided to try out the WIN
Xp 64 Pro RC2 on my computer. Just after loading from the cd i decided not to
install after all. (I had some files i really needed to save first).. During
the next boot the computer stopped working in between the Black XP loading
screen and the blue welcome screen. so i rebooted and timed the delay, it
seems to be around 10 - 15 seconds. Does anyone here have any hints of where
the problem is, what the problem is, and if its fixable? Its really really
annoying!

    There is no "Windows XP 64 Pro RC2" version available.
    Where did you find it? Any 64-bit version of Windows XP
    must be installed on a clean, reformatted drive or partition.
    It cannot upgrade over an existing Windows XP 32-bit O/S.
