I have a machine here from someone stating that they did a hard shutdown during the "Loading Your Personal Settings" stage while logging in. Now, while trying to boot into Windows, the following message is displayed:
Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM 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
However, while booting with an XP CD and trying to get into both the Recovery Console and repairing Windows section of setup, it blue screens with the following message:
... BAD_POOL_CALLER ... Technical information: ***STOP: 0x000000C2 (0x00000043, 0xC1F6D00, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
After looking this up, I've seen other people having this issue and it was related to their modem. However, this machine has no modem.
I've used an Ultimate Boot CD for Windows and ran MemTest on it, and the memory seems alright.
Thanks for any assistance!
