Specs: Windows XP
my XP system will not reboot to operational mode. machine reboots over and over. I do not have another XP system. I do have WIN 98 ( i know that won't work) and WINDOWS 7 systems. Can I connect my xp drive into windows 7 machine and run chkdsk on the xp drive. If chkdsk runs fine can i use windows 7 to restore the xp drive to a dirrent date.

Sure can, you just can't use Win 98 because it only know FAT 32 and will not see the NTFS on your XP drive. Windows 7 on the other hand will have no problem.

All available choices (safe, safe with command prompt, restart normal, last known config) all do the same thing. it just keeps rebooting. PC was purchased and no CD XP came with it. I tried to download windows xp sp3 from microsoft and then boot off of it to no avail. friend may have xp cd to try and boot around it. last thing done was a windows security update. i am unable to confirm that though.

You do it through Add and Remove Programs on your Control Panel.
Make sure to check the check box that say Show Updates. Sort the programs by date and get rid of the newest ones. They will be at the bottom.
