May be this happend when I intalled Longhorn Transformation Pack 10.

definitely cos of dat, dast why a restore point is recommended as thes epacks directly replace c:\windows\system32 files n it creates problems sometimes.

reboot n press F8 and select LAST BEST KNOWN CONFIGURATION

if doesnt help search a restore point in history. might be u ll fix it.

quite posbly, longhorn trans pack cud b the culprit, since it replaces a lot of system files. ven i had had instald it, mine refused to uninstal and after a shabby forced uninstal, my pc refused to boot. fortunately i had a systemrestore point to go to.

boot in normal mode, remove the longhorn trans pack, then run ccleaner, to rid ur pc of junk files/registry entries, and reboot again in normal mode.

then agn c if u can go to safe mode on the next boot.

ps:do u have a systemrestore point created b4 the lh trnsf pack installation ? if yes, try using it.


yeah restore poitn will work ..
just restore to a point u know the safe mode was working fine
maybe before longhorn transformation pack

however since normal mode works. . i dun see why LHTP should be the culprit

No, sometimes the safe mode checks for the version and details of a file in SYS32, once i replaceda bootscreen file (ntoskrnl) and safe mode prevented me from enterin coz it said that that file was corrupted or somethin but the normal boot worked...
