I tried to install Windows XP SP2. After the installation finished and the computer restarted I could not login because the computer failed to display the login screen. I see just a black screen with a mouse pointer on it. I tried Safe Mode and even the LastGood variant, but the same thing happens. How can I resolve this? I don't want to reinstall the entire Windows system.
I've seen this before and it can be brutal to troubleshoot. You should seriously consider Winternals'
. This tool will
pay for itself given how much time you'd have to spend troubleshooting or restoring otherwise.
