Type the following command lines at the prompt, pressing Enter after typing each.

expand d:\i386\browseui.dl_ c:\windows\system32
expand d:\i386\shdocw.dl_ c:\windows\system32
exit


Remove the cd and see if you can boot to Windows.

Ok...plan B

Plan B is a repair installation. Your data will be ok depite the generic warning you will receive telling you the My Documents folder may be deleted. I have used this repair hundreds of times and have never lost that folder.

Type exit and press Enter

Boot back to the cd. When you get to the Welcome to Setup screen, press Enter

Accept the License agreement...press F8

To repair the selected Windows installation...press R

Setup should begin installing Windows. This will appear just like a new install, but will be a little faster and will save your documents and settings. It will, however, remove all Windows Updates, so you will have to install those again. Windows will do that automatically if you have Automatic Updates enabled.

Let me know how this goes.
