My Windows XP computer has suddenly started hanging on startup. I get to the login screen, then after logging in my background wallpaper appears, but nothing else. No taskbar, no icons, and no response to Ctrl+Alt+Del.
It may be related to the fact that I have recently installed a second HDD with Win 2008 server. When I boot up on Win2k8 it all works fine, and I can access my WinXP drive. I also used to be able to boot up into WinXP, but I went on holiday for a few weeks, leaving the computer switched on in Win2k8 mode, and when I got back, I could no longer boot into WinXP.
