Re: Windows xp not booting

Hey, you can just go through the below troubleshooting guide and see if it is helping or not:
"Invalid Boot.ini" or "Windows could not start" error messages when you start your computer

Have you tried using "Last Known Good Configuration" ??? if not then try it out and see if it is making any difference if not then you will have to try out performing System Restore or restoring from a recent backup if you might have created it.
