Recovering from a boottime crash caused by SI

0 Likes

Problem:

My system blue screens when I have SI installed. I just want to boot without SI & salvage my system. Pressing ESC during the "Press ESC to cancel loading SoftIce" message at boot time does not help. How can I boot into NT to disable SI?

Resolution:


  1. Boot from a floppy into a Win9x or DOS command prompt.
  2. Pray that your %SystemRoot% directory is not on an NTFS drive.
  3. Change directories to %SystemRoot%\System32\Drivers.
  4. Rename NTICE.SYS.
  5. Rename SIWVID.SYS.
  6. Try to reboot into NT as normal.
