    Infinite Reboot Hell

    Argh

    Just had Vista reboot after a few updates (.net 3.5, and Defender) and now I'm in the Infinate Reboot Loop

    No problem - I'll go into WinRE and restore - only to find all my restore points have gone..

    tried cmd - sfc /scannow - no luck

    F8 - Safe Mode - No joy...

    Looking like a re-install

    Gatt,

    Is it the Update Stage 3 of 3 issue with Vista? If so, try rebooting into the recovery console via the Vista DVD. Once in there, rename the pending.xml file to pending.old (I think it's in the Windows\system32 folder) and reboot. That should sort it out & let you in again.

    Rob.

    It was - but I've already re-installed vista - took 30 mins
    Thankfully all the important stuff is on separate drives!!

    Will keep that in mind for future reference though!

    Come on who gave the bad rep? we are only having a bit of banter. Craig knows that

    LOL I can say it was not me btw.
    Tbh negative rep is not a huge deal unless you get a lot of people doing it so I would ignore it. It was only -5 rep score and thats the value of one "thank" message.

    I would still not rather have it. I wouldn't mind if it was for a good reason and i had a good rant. I didn't even do that.
