Hi,
I just wanted to install Kerio Personal Firewall 2.xx on my Windows installation, and now it refuses to boot. I cant give any more information than this, fucking windows wont print any messages but reboot instantly about then when "X" should get started.
I need the installation for gaming, and reinstalling (+ searching drivers, apps etc) will take more than 1h, any possibility to recover this?!

Try booting it in failsafe mode.

Do you get any messages, for example, that say your missing an important file like ntldr. If so, take out your windows xp disk and enter the system repair console.

I would type in fixboot <drive letter> and fixmbr <drive letter> If that doesn't work and you cna't boot into safe mode. I would just fuck windows and reinstall it all over again.

A reason once more to finally format you windows partition.

If a tree falls on a Windows box, does anyone really care?

I think your hardware is trying to communicate something to you.
