|I have an old laptop running Windows 2000. I recently found a virus on the machine and cleaned it. After cleaning it and rebooting it was stuck in the login loop (even in Safe Mode). I attempted to boot from the Windows 2000 CD but receive a BSOD with an Inaccessible Boot Device Error (Code 0x0000007B) when the installation starts (it does boot from CD and loads drivers). The laptop doesn't have an internal CD Drive so I'm booting from a USB CD Rom which I believe is causing the problem. The laptop also doesn't have a Floppy drive and I don't have one I can use either. Can anyone help with the login loop issue or the BSOD? I assume I can repair using the Win 2000 CD recover console if I can just get into it. |
Also does anyone know of anyway to get into the registry without getting into windows? The laptop also isn't on network so I can't do it from another machine. The HD is also difficult to get to without taking apart the whole machine so that's not an option.
Any assistance would be great.
