I was trying to get my laptop to boot into safe mode to get rid of a file. I went to msconfig and picked Safe Boot, after I restarted my laptop, I got the message:
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:
1. Insert your Windows installation disc and restart your computer.
2. Choose your language settings, and then click "Next."
3. Click "Repair your computer."
If you do not have the disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.
Info: The Windows Boot Configuration Data file is missing required information.
When I hit enter, it just restarts my laptop and brings me to the same screen. My laptop did not come with a installation disc.. The only thing I did was change a setting which I thought was going to boot me into safemode in msconfig. Can somebody please help me determine a solution? Thanks.
Need to repair your MBR, this entails using a Windows Install disk, Windows Repair disk, or a utility disk like Hiren's. To create a disk you will need access to another PC and of course a blank disk. Meanwhile, if you have all your data backed up, you could try to restore your OS to Factory settings employing te Recovery Partition on your HDD. Instructions in your Manual, or post your Laptop Make/model for advice. This will revert your system to the same as when you bought it, but removes all peronal data and settings.
