So recently my computer won't start. It just goes to a black screen and nothing more. When I boot it in safemode, it gets stuck at isapna.sys. Upon googling it, I find this:
It is not problem with isapnp.sys. It's problem with pciide.sys which is loaded after isapnp.sys
Start Recovery console (boot with XP setup CD).
go to c:\windows\system32\drivers
type "expand d:\i386\isapnp.sy_" for expanding isapnp.sys
after that type "expand d:\i386\pciide.sy_"
Those commands expand from setup XP CD files isapnp.sys and pciide.sys into c:\windows\system32\drivers folder.
Just to explain : if boot sequence stop at one file *.sys, it doesn't mean there is problem with THAT file. It could be problem with driver which follow last shown driver.
If found at one forume one more step : While using recovery console, go to c:\windows\system32\drivers folder and start "dir" command. Check, if there any *.sys file with 0 length. Just delete it.
Is this possible with UBCD? And if so, how do I do it? It'd be greatly appreciated if someone could type a little tutorial!! (I know my hopes are high for my first post haha.)
