I'm new here, so I'm not sure if this is in the right area. I have been getting into safe mode on my hard drive due to a windows problem. Well, when the HD booted, I accidentally hit F 10 instead of F 8 for save mode and the system recovery came up. I do not want to recover as it will wipe out my entire 120 GB hard drive. I hit cancel. here's where it gets interesting. The pc automatically reboots into systems recovery and will not stop. I hit cancel system recovery each time. is there a way to get out of this loop?
