HELP! window XP can not boot
Posted by alber... on 23. November 2005

recently I am having problem to boot the window XP. Last night I
spent 6 hours, reboot/reset about 100 time until I got a successful
boot. Most of the time it just failed to boot. When I boot to safe mode
(always successful) I ran AVG anti-virus, it showed "read error" when
AVG tried to read boot MBR and boot sector. I then suspect that the MBR
and boot sector is bad that most of the time can not be read. However,
when I boot from diskeet and do "fixmbr" "fixboot" the problem is still
there. I even fix/re-install window xp and it does not help. Is there
anyone having the similar problem and know how to fix that?

Thanks a lot
