Ok...I'm having a BIG problem. My laptop would not boot in safe mode using F8 at start up. I would just restart over and over. stupid me read somewhere that you can start XP in safe mode form the "run" window using msconfig. So I did that and restarted and, as I"m sure you can guess, the machine is now stuck in a start up loop. No matter what option I choose on the F8 Menu, it just restarts and the loop doesn't end. I don't have any physical OS disks..the recovery works off of a partition. I can get the partition with F11 but it won't boot to do a windows restore and i really don't want to do a full recovery... can some one PLEASE HELP ME!?!?!?!?!?!?!
