Reboot message after crash
After d/l and execution of a small program(s) [for further details see below] I heard a small click on the HDD, and the pc crashed/stalled. When I restarted it, it fails to load win XP, and i got the following message on DOS screen:
"Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key."
I believe I have d/l a suspect program, but how do I now get out of it and get into windows safemode to restore to a previous point...any ideas?
Can I do a windows repair install from CD without data loss? I have not made a bootable CD, can I on another PC?
