Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I cannot get windows to load up it keeps taking me back to choose between normal and safe mode which none of the options will boot up windows

Answers :

Create a bart pe disc and backup any data if you have any ( this will only work if you have not encrypted anything - you will know if you have encrypted anything as its not something you can do accidentally )


FAQ on how to create a bart pe is on the site in the FAQ help section so follow that or google for a tutorial and you should be able to create one.

Then boot your computer up with that and recover your data ( obviously you may need to download extra plugins from the bart pe site to be able to use the bart pe disc to recover data - possibly - everything is in the tutorials )

Then do a repair install of windows ( you can just do the repair install of windows but I prefer to make a backup of any data if required )

Otherwise just repair install or a fresh install along with drivers, software etc

When you have your computer as you want it you can use clone zilla or fog ( google them ) free open source apps to make an image of your computer so you can just upload the image back to your hard drive and it will be like you just re installed windows with all the drivers etc.
