Was the repair successful?
Can you get into safe mode?
Booting in safe mode stops after loading partmgr.sys.
The xp cd repair did not change anything, symptoms still remain.
I did a full Dell diagnostics test and it passed this.
However I managed to access the boot log using the cd.
The 1st item not to load is: driver ACPI Uniprocessor PC .
At my disposal I have Xp CD, Ultimate Boot CD, ERD Commander.
