Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup using the original Setup CD-ROM.
Select 'r' at the first screen to start repair.
This has happened before with some other random files, and I found online how to fix that, but I cannot find anywhere on Microsoft.com that gives simple instructions on how to fix this problem. In addition, several times while in the Recovery Console or even just the XP Setup screen, the computer just shut off for no apparent reason. The fact that I have two papers and a powerpoint due on Monday and a paper due on Tuesday means I need to get this fixed now. I have the Windows XP Professional Disk, I just need to know what to do.
