Post by bongring on Mon 22 Dec 2008, 8:51 pm


windows could not not start because the ff. file is missing or corrupt
\windows\system32\config\system


i tried repairing windows but i'm that good in command prompt, and i dont even know which of those command lines should i use to repair that certain file, could someone help me identify which of those should be used in windows repair.+

Have you tried a repair install using your OS installation disc?

Follow the instructions given in this great thread by Doctor Inferno:

http://www.geekpolice.net/tutorials-guides-f13/how-to-perform-a-windows-xp-repair-install-t540.htm?highlight=repair+install

Also see this:

http://www.geekpolice.net/tutorials-guides-f13/how-to-use-sfcexe-to-repair-system-files-t1181.htm?highlight=repair+install

Other factors also depend here.....I have known of this problem to occur shortly after a format n clean install only to realize the cause was a failing HDD which was uncovered during a 'chkdsk' scan!

Try going to Start, My Computer, and right-click Local Disk C.
Click Properties, Tools, and you'll find buttons for Check Now and Defragment Now......run them!

OEM Restore disks or hidden restore folders on the hard drive will not work for the Repair Install!
