    Win Netsky problem...Can't log on
    « on: February 26, 2010, 08:34:08 PM »
    I can't log on to my computer. I read somewhere that I can get back in if I use the WindowsXP disc but my dvd drive hasn't worked for awhile.  I have an external dvd drive also but since I can't log on and load the software, it doesn't read it either.  Is there anything else I can do?

    Have you tried logging on in Safe Mode?

      What kind of computer is it.

      Do you think it will boot with a flash drive? http://evilfantasy.wordpress.com/bitdefender-rescue-usb/

        It's a Dell Inspiron E1505.

        So I used the USB Bitdefender.  It detected and deleted 9 items.  The website says to exit and turn off the computer then start it up normally.  I did this and it still logs me off immediately.  Am I doing it right?  Is there a way to log on from the bitdefender screen?

        Thanks

        You might need to use a repair CD on the flash drive. Use UnetBootin to load OTLPE.iso and post the log.

          I used UnetBootin to load OTLPE.iso onto a flash drive.  When I try to use it boot though it says

          Loading /ubnkern
          Invalid or corrupt kernel image
          boot:

          Did I miss a step maybe?

          No it may not work with Unetbootin.

          I'm kind of stumped. Without the CD drive you may have a hard time getting this fixed.

          Here are a few links for a bootable XP USB.
          http://www.downloadsquad.com/2009/08/27/make-a-bootable-usb-installer-for-windows-xp-vista-7-with-wint/

          http://www.cnet.com.au/boot-windows-xp-from-a-usb-flash-drive-339271777.htm?omnRef=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2Fsearch%3Fq%3Dhow%2Bto%2Bmake%2Ba%2Bbootable%2Bxp%2Busb%26ie%3Dutf-8%26oe%3Dutf-8%26aq%3Dt%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial%26client%3Dfirefox-a

          You might be able to get it to boot to Windows then attempt to do a repair. Start > Run then type sfc /scannow and click OK.

          You might also try asking in the Linux forum on how to repair Windows by USB with a Live CD. http://www.computerhope.com/forum/index.php/board,10.0.html
