You could pull the drive out, put it in another machine, copy the files to the correct locations, and then put it back.
Might be easier to swap in a working CD, though.
Bootable flash drive, but you don't want that.
Not much else to choose from, really.
Is it in a reboot loop, or is it getting to the desktop?
Thanks, D. It wasn't in a reboot loop, thankfully. Just no networking, no taskbar, and general brokenness of apps if I could get them to launch at all. Will ask the IT guys to replace the CD drive - never know when this will happen again!Message was edited by: markp on 4/27/10 10:42:09 AM CDT
