Windows could not start because the following file is missiong or currupt:
\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM

You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup using the orginial Setup CD-ROM.
Select 'r' at the first screen to repair.


I am at the screen after pressing "R" and it's a command line, what am I suppose to do to fix this file to boot back to Windows?
