I had a troublesome program starting up when Windows 7 was starting, and I had no way to remove it, because I couldn't log in to Windows. Not even safe mode.
But I used Hiren's BootCD to edit the registry to stop that software from starting up... But my efforts were not useful as Windows kept on going to an ultimate freeze just before the login screen should have been shown.
And it just freezes, and I cannot do anything.
So I decided: To heck with it. I now want to format the disk and reinstall a fresh copy of Windows 7. But now regardless of the USB or DVD I use to boot the setup, it loads fine till you see the animating Windows and it just resets the laptop! Just plain resets!
Hiren's Boot CD and Mini XP, strange enough, still works :(
What might be causing the laptop to reset in Windows 7 setup?
