Causing windows load to "fail" for education purposes

Posted 22 May 2012 - 02:43 PM

I've been asked to create a boot disc that will cause windows boot to fail at a certain point, the actual error that it will cause does not need to be complex something simple will suffice. the purpose is to have students dig into what is causing it to error out.

And to complement that they of course need a disc to reverse the error.

My problem is that I don't know (and hoping I can get an answer in the forum):

1. What files to modify to cause windows to fail (they may actually point me in the correct direction with this..maybe)

2. How to modify those files when booting from a disc? Do I create a Linux boot disc that mounts the primary drive, moves or corrupts some files then exists and allows the hdd to attempt to boot?

Any ideas with this would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Sorry but any information you gain from this can be used in a malicious way.
