    WinXP not booting after Widcomm driver install

    My bluetooth and GPS were't working correctly. I reinstalled the serial bridge which went ok. Then I reinstalled The Widcomm drivers and the PC won't boot correctly after a restart. ctrl-alt-delete doesn't work, and safe mode doesn't work right. I have minlogon enabled, and no CDrom in the car. The only thing I can set up to boot from is USB if that helps. Somebody give me a hand before I go outside and break that goddamn thing.

    I recently tried a widcomm install that went sownhill and left my system trashed. It had overwritten a standard xp dll with one of it's own and xp didn't like it. It would get past the windows loading screen, but an error came up instead of teh desktop and I could never get past it.

    I tried to get around it a few ways but nothing worked. My system needed a format and re-install anyway, so I just went for that. Installed the widcomm drivers fine the next time round.
    I installed my carpc into my pet Kangaroo, mate.

    Yeah, I had to completey redo the HD again too. I installed the drivers then, but now they won't work cause of that license thing. My copy had a hacked lisence and worked before, but I don't wanna risk messing with it again.
