  • xp could not start because of missing or corrupt....

    This is the message I get when trying to boot in my XP system:

    "Windows XP could not start because of missing or corrupt windows/system32/config/system

    I tried the CDs repair but I'm not sure what to type after it says which system do you want to repair.

    I type 1 and the it shows
    c:/windows>

    Now what...?

    I typed chkdsk and had it check the disk...it's ok...then I typed cd and went into c:/windows/system32/config/system and displayed the dir.....I see the system file that's supposidly corrupt (virus maybe).....how do I fix this from here.

    Thanks to whoever can help.....

      Windux....

      At first I was excited about this step by step......but when you get to "step 4", my XP prof CD did not have the repair option after hitting f8 to accept the license agreement. I then used another XP Prof CD that I got from a kid in one of my courses about 2 years ago. It worked up until the point where its reinstalling XP and now it's at the window asking me for the key......what the hell!! The key I used is the lagitimate key for my system, but using that "other CD" it says "not a valid key".....any suggestions.....

      The first CD I used didn't give the repair option in step 4, just "install, delete partition, choose a different partition......what do you think about all this, never goes smoothly......

      Thanks,

        XP missing or corrupt files cont......

        Well I found a key that worked.....its still installing and I have a feeling that instead of just "repairing" the "system" file it's doing a whole "upgrade" which I was trying like heck to avoid.....we'll see

        Thanks for that site, I bookmarked it.....

                eventid

                I tried yesterday and it could not find the server, maybe they were working on it....anyway it's coming up again for me today.

                I use that site hundreds of times, it's great, especially for servers. The payment isn't much but, yet you can google up the answers or further infor that you need.....
