Ok, so I messed something up. My old PC died and I need to get the files off the old hard drive so I put it in my new PC. It booted up once fine, but I had to do a hard restart because I stupidly left a wire near the CPU fan and it got caught. Everything is fine but I now can't boot up. It wants me to do a system repair;
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 origional setup CD-Rom.
Select 'r' at the first screen to star repair.
I have tried to do a windows repair using my windows CD. When it asks me;
Which Windows installation would you like to log onto"
I type "1" press enter and a blue screen of death happens.
If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:
*** STOP: 0x00000051 (0x00000003, 0x0000001, 0x00004000, 0xE1244040)
I keep getting the same message. I have taken out the old hard drive and just left in the working one but still no luck. I don't want to lose the data I have saved on either drive if possible but I'm not too hopeful at getting it working again.
I did a quick search to find out if I could fix the registry, but it says it can't be used with OEM software so I'm at a loss of what to do now.
Thanks in advance for any help.
