Overall a very bad experience with a series of system errors. Started with\nsimple blues screen errors when trying to boot into XP progress to more\nserious problems. The early problems were resolved by rebooting again. Then\nbooted into XP was advised that there had been major hardware changes that\nrequired activation of XP. There had been no hardware changes since before\ninstalling XP. But the capping error happen this morning when I was unable to\nboot into XP. The blue screen stated Bad sys config Info. Thankfully I had a\npre Vista disk image and was able to get my system up and running again\nwithout Vista since the boot manager was no longer installed. Reformated the\ndrive that contained Vista. No more starnge system errors.
