Pls help,xp patition cant boot safemode nor normal afta I chekd'safeboot' in msconfig
Hello friends. Please I really need help here. I have two partitions Vista and xp on my aspire laptop. Vista was preinstalled. I've had this 4 long and in perfect condition. Recently,I wanted to install a software in the xp partition that requires that I boot into I decided to activate safeboot on gui by checking it at ''msconfig'' but after this I reboot the machine, so it can boot via safemode, but the pc refused to boot neither thru safemode nor normal startup. I mean the xp partition no longer boots.each time I try booting safemode, it gets to a point ''multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(4)\windows\syst em32\Apppatch\drvmain.sdb'' & pauses wit msg ''press escape to cancel loading SPTD.SYS'' pls guys I need help2solve this.I tryd repairing d windows xp but wen it prompts 4 Admin password, I enter my admin password but it keeps rejecting it. Pls help my xp partition is valuable. Thanks a lot in advance.

hello kaycee, if you can boot into safemode and enable bootlogging
Then when you are asked if you want to load sptd.sys, just say no.
Let me know how you get on

friend, i will do as you said, but i remember i have tried to boot via bootlogging and it did the same thing.thou I didnt do what you said now.
But i also want to remind you that it does not ask me anything it only displays this ''press escape to cancel loading SPTD.SYS'' after a while, it shows a fast "blue screen of death" and then loops. what do u think?

@Mhookem, I tried the boot logging thing that you told me about but it didnt work out. Have you figured out any other thing? I can attach the bluescreen of death that is normally displayed when the computer loops and would not boot.

Hello, I've been looking around and it seems that quite a lot of people have had the same problem with sptd.sys.

I'm off to the gym, I'll leave more detailed post later on today that will hopefully solve your problem

Kaycee, if you have your xp cd, boot from it and choose to repair xp.
When you get to the repair console just type 'fixboot'.
Let me know what happens

kaycee 05-06-2010 06:08 PM

mhookem, thanks but where do u you refer to as the repair console?? Cos I've tried to boot from xp cd and repair the xp. But wen It gets to the screen where I'd hav to enter my admin pasword, It keeps tellin me that my administrator password is invalid. Pls how do u say I should do that?? Thanks

kaycee 05-06-2010 06:18 PM

Mhoohem, Please let me also say again that I have 2 partitions on the pc - vista and xp. So when ever I get to the repair part, it asks me ''which windows partition do I want to logon to??'' when I choose the xp partition which id D, it says my pasword is invalid

kaycee 05-06-2010 06:25 PM
