window reboots after login in dual boot system


I dualbooted fedora and XP on my friend's system.

For some days both OS ran smoothly without any error,but now while loging in Windows XP, after supplying the username and password the system(XP) reboots automatically ..

Is there any connection with linux side,as I tried also with REDHAT,SUSE same thing happening again and again only after installing Linux.

I checked in linux but unable to find any error..

What should I do now ??

Hi,

I'd be looking at the Xp install. You will possibly need to use the M$ install media to do a repair.

Hi,

Yes! This a gnu/linux forum so I would be presenting repair questions to M$ or a M$ forum for M$ related problems.

Hi,

If the problem is with the M$ login then that has nothing to do with the GNU/Linux installation.

While booting Windows Xp, press F-8(multiple times if required) , you will get an option to boot "Last Known Good Configuration". Select it.
As you have used Fedoara + Xp dual boot previously so i think there is a problem with your Windows installation only, may be a new driver or software is causing the problem. I faced a similar situation after installing Dameon Tools. Try it, if that works let us know.

Regards.

Only after linux...

You may well have incurred problems with your Windows boot loader after installing linux, but a spontaneous re-boot is also common in XP if there is some other problem.

If you don't have a XP CD to repair your boot loader, this may help you.

Hi,

Spontaneous reboot is possible but the OP states he is getting to the Xp Login screen.

If the OP wants too get into the Safe Mode by pressing F8, then choose safe mode to disable the 'Welcome Screen'. 'Fast User Switching' should be disabled by the administrator via the User Accounts.

If the login screen is not the problem then try my original suggestion for the XP repair. Look at this knowledge base link;
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/330184

This is a problem with M$ Xp and has nothing to do with GNU/Linux.
