Computer boots, OS Doesn't

Recommended Posts

I just got my new nForce 680i LT motherboard and It boots up fine, when it comes to the Checking DMI Pool information its will ask me to reboot, and so I loaded the original bios config, and tried to boot it, worked. Got to the famous windows xp loading screen with the little blue box loading bar, and gives me three clean runs then reboots on the fourth run half way thru. The harddrive is running a stock SONY VAIO Media Center, Do I have to buy a new OS and install it? Or is there a way to make this new computer boot on the same media center OS I currently have installed?

Please help, Want to finally get this computer running. :sad3:

It has a 8 disk in which I have right here, do I just set it up again with these?  :smile2:

I hope to God it'll work, but then again I'm losing almost 140Gigs of games, music, pr0n, and movies. :oops:  :cry2: Oh well I'll just redownload  [geek-small]

That most likely isnt going to work. Your going to need an original windows disk.

that is the repair for your sony computer and it probably is just a image of the origanl sony install. You could try it and see, but dont count on it.

dont wana loose that porn huh  :haha: :haha:

i kinda didnit get your problem . anyway such errors might be fixed in one way. worked with me around ten times . if you can arrange a windows xp professional disk for some time. from anyone . you can boot ur pc with the disk and then START installing the windows . before it installs it will scan ur hard disk . and remove any error if its there . most likely ur error gets removed . and u can just cancel the install.  :undecided:
