Had been getting an occasional blue screen and auto re-boot for a couple of weeks after loading BONIC (runs SETI or Project Einstein during idle time). BONIC never worked, I just thought I hadn't configured it properly. Well, I tried to run my Medal of Honor in multi player mode for the first time, crashed, re-booted, tried to run it again, but upon this reboot I got:
\Windows\sys32\Config\sustem is missing or corrupt
Yadda yadda reboot off the XP disk and press r to repair sort of thing.....
So, found my XP disk and it loads its files, then gets stuck on:
'Advansys 3550 ultrawide SCSI host adapter" and goes to a blue screen saying:
"File mraid35x.sys is missing or corrupted. Press any key to restart" and the viscious circle continues.
This is a system I assembled, an 80mb drive and a 250mb drive. OS is on the 80 so I disconnected it leaving the 250 conencted via SATA. re-started and it went right to the XP disk, but halted at the same point. Can't even get to a DOS prompt.
