Bootup Problem



When my machine boots I get a message saying,
'Missing or corrupt file: C:\windows\system32\config\system'

Has anyone had this problem and/or have a solution??

Thanks in advance for any responses!!
your gonna have to boot from the XP cd and use the recovery console to fix it, it basically means one of the boot files got corrupted :(
have you updated your highpoint bios? Updating the highpoint bios can/will corrupt system32 if you have a hdd on a raid port.
Also, converting from fat 32 can cause the prob.
i will look for the microsoft instructions for reparing a damaged hive.
try going to microsoft support and searching for "repair damaged hive".
I found the link but when I pasted it here it would not work.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
