Interactive logon process initialization error message

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Athanasian Creed, Sep 16, 2007.

  1. Greetings all,

    A friend of mine called me tonight saying he can't get Windows Vista
    Home Premium to start on his laptop. All he gets is a black screen with
    an error message -

    "Interactive logon process initialization has failed. Please consult the
    event log for more details."

    He didn't receive a Vista DVD so he can't run a startup repair or
    anything else - he can't even get into 'Safe Mode'

    I suggested he find someone with a Vista DVD and try a startup repair,
    or, worse comes to worse, take it back to the place where he bought it
    (still under warranty)

    Can any gurus out there help us get this guy back up and running again??
    I did a google search of the error message - an exercise in futility!

    Thanks in advance for any and all replies!



    Ray :(

    Hi!

    I had received the same "Interactive logon process initialization has
    failed. Please consult the event log for more details" Error on my
    Vista.

    I could solve this temporarily by restarting it, after removing any SD
    card, CD/DVD from the Laptop. Just try removing any external memory if
    is already connected while booting.

    Hope it solved your problem, at least it did for me.

    Cheers!!
