|I have a simple question but have not been able to find a simple answer. I run Windows XP Pro. I have been trying to uninstall the Avast Free Antivirus but to do so I needed to run the uninstall program while in safe mode. I had been unable to get my computer to boot into safe mode even though it was booting normally with no problem. I made the mistake of going into MSCONFIG and changing the boot method to diagnostic and now I am stuck in a loop where the computer will not boot normally or any other way because I think of what I entered on MSCONFIG. I keep ending up on the boot menu after the computer fails to boot in diagnostic mode. When I stopped it from automatically rebooting on Stop, I get the BSOD with the error message: IRLQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, and the following codes|
Is there any way to access MSCONFIG from the XP recovery console to change the boot method back to normal? Does anyone have any other solutions to my self inflicted predicament? I did try a FIXMBR from the recovery console but that did not help. I am hoping to avoid trying a repair install. Help! I know just enough to be dangerous.
