I have a PC that dual boots both XP and 7. Yesterday, I restarted my computer to go from 7 to XP to play a game, all fine and dandy so far. When I came back onto windows 7, the Windows intro logo loads, disappears as usual, but instead of loading by desktop, I get :
"Interactive logon process initialization has failed. Please consult the event log for more details."
So I decided to go check my event log. I booted on XP, went to
G:\Windows\System32\winevt\Logs, copied the file : Application.evtx to my USB key, and opened it up on another Win 7 system to check it out. I thought I could find the error, but I can't get any logs out of the event log. The last entry being a month ago for some reason.
I want to avoid formatting my Win 7 partition at all costs, so this is my last resort, countless hours of searching on google has given me nothing. I find this frustrating, as I am not a 'noob' with computers, I usually fix other people's problems, but this one just has me stunned.
Safe mode doesn't work
System restore doesn't work
System repair doesn't work.
I've tried almost everything so far.
Please keep in mind that I do in fact have complete access to my G: partition, which is my Windows 7 partition.
Thank you very much, +9000 internets to the person who can help me solve this.
