GeneralWhen booting in Safe Mode fails. PinmemberSoMad3-Nov-12 18:49 
Have you ever felt a chill down your spine when your PC fails to boot normally and when you try the Safe Mode option(s), it just reboots again? Unsure | :~
 
Well, this happened to me and the chill just kept spreading as I frantically used my phone to search on information about JGOGO.SYS, which was the last driver shown during Safe Mode boot before it rebooted again. I realized I needed to boot on a different drive and access my system drive in order to fix it, but where do I have an XP boot disk? Somewhere I am sure, but it has been so long since I have needed it. To make matters worse, I was South of the border (in Baja California) and did not have a USB stick available and I had moved the DVD drive to my secondary system, which was at my house in San Diego.
 
I was finally able to get my hands on another bootable hard disk and with that configured as the boot drive, it automatically started running CHKDSK, which repaired a bunch of stuff. After a while I was able to breathe a sigh of relief when I reconfigured my own hard disk to be the boot drive and it started up just fine.
 
What did you do on your Saturday? Cool | :cool:
