Hmm... so yes I've backedup/reformated/reinstalled (a lolLegal copy) windows. Still. Getting. Errors.
Also before I went through and did that I used the following instructions to replace my boot.ini just to make sure it wasnt/corrupted/broken/wrong/blahblahblahetc. And that didnt work.
So yay me, I think I need to get a friend to let me borrow their computer so I can test my video cards... though I'm not sure how that will work.
Attrib -H -R -S C:\Boot.ini
I've tested my RAM each stick individually (2GB, 4 x 512), reinstalled with original Windows CD and Drivers, and am about to test my video cards if I can find someone to help me out with that. Any ideas on what to do next?
