corputed file = no winXP disk this would be easy if Gateway gave me a WinXP CD . . . instead they gave me a recovery CD with WinXP embedded which will reformat the whole HD if used - IDIOTS anyway I have a corrupted file (I get this message on startup) "c:\windows\system32\config\system" is corrupted us WinXP and 'r' to start recovery so far, I went to my second desktop (same Gateway model) and tried to copy the system file to a floppy - but I cannot because copying the file is prevented because file is "in use" I even tried from the cmd (dos) prompt any ideas??? eg how can I copy that file onto the floppy then how can I get it into the broken desktop? I do have a brand new XP Pro CD - still in its sleave can I use that to start my XP home problem desktop?
