I'm hoping someone can help me with this. I've been trying to fix my brothers computer for days now. It was working fine with Win XP Pro and I installed a windows update, restarted and now it wont load past the splash screen (loading bar just keeps moving). I've tried safe mode and that wouldnt work either. It just hangs up on the commands. I've also tried doing windows recovery with the Windows XP Home cd and that didn't work as well. I'm now trying recovery console and just did fixboot and fixmbr. I haven't rebooted yet because its still in the process of chkdsk /r. If this doesn't work, I dont know what else to try. I hope you guys can help me out. Thanks.
