I've been trying to repair XP media center 2005 because it won't boot past the XP loading phase due to a BSOD. After attempting to repair the partition I left to work and let the setup run on its own, however, I forgot to leave the power adaptor connected to the laptop, so when I come home the laptop is turned off with no battery.
The problem that I'm having now is that now that I boot windows I get an error after the BIOS saying 'Windows Could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt system32 system.sav'
I've tried booting up with and without the XP CD after that and I get the same error. It's not booting from the CD any longer. I'm at a loss of what to do, since I don't have very much to work with here as all I get to do now is choose between the boot order and BIOS setup. I'm currently running a Hard Disk Self Check from the BIOS setup but I doubt that has anything to do with the problem.
If I can please please get some help this time around it'd be very much appreciated, thank you very much...
