\015\012Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \\WINDOWS\\SYSTEM32\\CONFIG\\SYSTEM
\015\012That means the System Registry Hive has become corrupted.
\015\012There are two ways to get back up and running. The easy way which doesn't always work, and then there is the hard way.
\015\012Easy Way --- Note that this doesn't always work.
\015\012When you are booting your system, press the F8 key during the start of\015\012the bootup sequence, meaning after it does the Power On Self Test.
\015\012Once you press the F8 key, you will be taken to a Menu. Select "Boot Using Last Known Good Configuration".
\015\012It will now attempt to load Windows XP using a past set of configuration files.
\015\012If that doesn't work, there is the next step....the hard way.
\015\012Hard Way
\015\012Boot your system with the Windows XP Install CD, let the system boot into the Setup. Once in the Setup, choose to run the Recovery Console2.gif.
\015\012You will now be presented with a screen similar to good old DOS.
\015\012First, we will recover the System Hive.
\015\012Now, type in the following commands with pressing Enter after each line.
\015\012md tmp
\015\012copy C:\\windows\\system32\\config\\system C:\\windows\\tmp\\system.bak
\015\012delete C:\\windows\\system32\\config\\system
\015\012copy C:\\windows\\repair\\system C:\\windows\\system32\\config\\system
\015\012Be very careful when you are typing in these commands, one wrong move, and you have, broken Windows XP.
\015\012Also, change the C in the commands to whatever your Windows XP drive letter is.
\015\012Attempt to boot the system, if it doesn't boot, get back into the Recovery Console and do the following commands.
\015\012md tmp
\015\012copy C:\\windows\\system32\\config\\software C:\\windows\\tmp\\software.bak
\015\012delete C:\\windows\\system32\\config\\software
\015\012copy C:\\windows\\repair\\software C:\\windows\\system32\\config\\software
