The computer operates using Windows ME. I hadn't used it in awhile and recently, upon trying to start it I found that it no longer boots.
If I start the computer up without the Emergency Boot Disk, I get the following:
This program must be run under Win32
WININIT.EXE: Missing/Unable to load
Press any key to continue...
I hit a key and then it says the following:
Cannot find SYSTEM.INI
Boot with emergency boot disk and type SCANREG /RESTORE
So I do...I restart with the boot disk in the floppy drive and I now get the following screen:
Microsoft Windows Millenium Help and then lists about four options that I have followed through including a Help Menu that doesn't answer any of the questions that I have.
I scan the registry in all different drives and it tells me everytime that there are no backup files to restore. This concerns me because all of the help that I've been seeking says that it should find dates in the registry and I should select the one that appears to be prior to my install.
It's basically missing pieces that I don't know anything about or even where to begin. I would really like to save what I can off this hard drive, if not get it up and running again. Could someone please help me?
Thank you so much!
