Hello! I have just recently installed the latest version of Python (2.5.1) and restarted my pc. When I restarted I get: "Error loading operating system". Then I restarted again and reset my BIOS. I get the same OS error. Please Help!
Do you have a restore point that you could go back to
Can you get as far as the screen that offers you Restart in Safe Mode etc (can you walk the gangplank?)
what python did you install. was it active python or something else.
That black screen says to me that the only way to fix is to reinstall Windows. I have been faced with this many times, and found I can't do much more than reinstall.
The OS wont load at all, I'm afraid a reinstall is my only option.
Reinstall is not that bad. Your stuff is still on the disk. Its just a hassle moving it
Do you have XP or Vista?
Woops just saw where this thread was disregard my last post.
I had a similar error with Vista. I had another partition and installed Vista on it again and my computer booted up ok. Im not sure if this will work for XP but worth a try
