    Boot using your winxp cd.Enter recovery console at the command prompt go to
    C:/windows/system32 next type: Dir *.exe If you find, it, type
    copy userinit.exe wsaupdater.exe
    Exit and reboot normally. You should now be able to logon.
    Run regedit
    Navigate to
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\
    In the right pane, you should see
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\wsaupdater.exe,
    Change it so that it reads:
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\userinit.exe

    Alternatively you can install the drive as a secondary in another system and use the Load Hive feature of the Windows Registry which will allow you to load the registry on the secondary drive.

    The trouble with loading the drive on another system is that you need to minimise the risk of cross-infection.

    True which is why I wouldn't do it on a live system

    I have done the same as Phil from Liverpool. Hirens boot cd, into mini windows, save all data to external drive and then reload the operating system.

    Saved a lot of time trying to get things working.
