I couldn't because the old mobo died...
I'll try the safe mode part, thanks!
well the repair and safe mode options didn't work, so I decided to take the leap/dive and do a format and re-install of windows.
Noticed with the last few reboots that before it got to windows splash screen it was saying...
Secondary Slave Hard Disk Error
Guessing that's one of my IDE drives...at least I'm guessing at this point. I should know more once i get into windows. I disconnected and reconnected all the drives - IDE and SATA, but same error. I didn't try and disconnecting the IDE slave yet and see if the error still occurs or not.
UGH the problems continue. Successfully installed windows, but now after a fresh install it just sits at the windows log/splash screen. Been sitting there for 15+mins now.
