Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
Why would it break your laptop, what's Bariski, and why does it sound like some script is failing as you boot?
Yes it sounds like things are going pear-shaped; you should find a nice data transfer program for XP installs and do 3 things:
1- Boot to a backup utility CD and make a full backup of your HD to optical disk or a network (SAN/WAN), or just make a HD to HD copy on the bench using the bench machine if you know how to do that. Laptop HDs only last 3 years at full performance, especially if well-traveled.
1a- Yes, you need a new laptop HD of the same interface; any size is fine.
2- Install an OS you like on the new HD; then a VM and partition for the old stuff if you want to preserve that environment and it doesn't transfer directly or seems inadvisable. Install antivirus and backup tools too.
3- Transfer your stuff to the working system from the original drive or backup.
