    Windows XP hangs at (start-up) Logo, but will start in safe mode

    I am running Windows XP Media Center that hangs up during the startup. I can boot till the logo and scroll to the blue bars and nothing further. I can start the pc in safe mode with no issues. I have already done, scandisk, defragmentation, clean boot, etc, but nothing is working for me. Can anyone tell me how to solve this issue?

    To conclude the problem if you are getting a successful safe mode and cannot boot normally, then it means that there is a driver issue. You can check the help function about using of bootlog file.

    XP Hangs on boot logo. Safe mode works

    I am having the same problem. I have reinstalled xp home and pro several times. I found a problem with the partitions but that did not help. I have found that if I boot to safe mode and run NDD32.exe from the Norton system works disk (2003) and schedule a fix on reboot it fixes the problem. Windows will then boot. When I reboot there are two options. "Turn off machine" and "Restart". If I choose restart no problem but if I choose Turn off machine then it hangs on reboot until I run NDD32.exe again. NDD32 seems to run chkdsk /f but I have been unable so far to get this to substitue for NDD32.exe.
