I've been having a few minor windows problems, like nothing happening when i press 'accept' on the license agreement for acrobat reader. Having no idea what's wrong I decided to reinstall windows. I ran windows setup from within windows, not directly off the CD. It me to find a driver file manually. I had no idea even what hardware it was for. I just hit esc to ignore figuring everything was already on the version of windows installed - that file just wouldn't be updated. After the installer rebooted and ran for a while I get a BSOD something about a driver unloading while commands were still pending. It reboots, restarts the reinstall, crashes, reboots, repeat ad infinitum. I tried taking the CD ROM out, it asks for it, I say cancel, it reboots, restarts the reinstall, asks for the CD, ... Booting into safe mode says you can't run install from here, press ok to reboot. So how do I stop this reinstall juggernaut? The problems weren't as bad as my attempted solution!
