My XP SP3 machine was working fine yesterday. I turned it on today to get a message saying the System 32 setup file was corrupt or missing. It then said to press 'R' using the xp installation disc.

So I put the XP install disc in (SP1 & ive tried SP2), changed the boot order to run from CD. I get to the blue screen where it starts to load windows then I get the blue screen of death 0x0000007B (0xF78D663c, 0xC0000034 then 2 lots of all zeros.) So then I found a post which told me to go to Drives - SATA - Change this from "RAID Auto/AHCI" to "RAID Auto/ATA". I did this and this time it got me to the point that i could press repair. I pressed 'R' then it started to do something for about 10 seconds then I got another blue screen, this time 0x00000051 (0x00000003, 0x0000000x, 0x00000000, 0xE1686000). So Im guessing my registry is corrupt some how, but is there any way to repair the registry when I cannot get windows to load at all? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Phil

Hi and :welcome: Phil147

Please download ARCDC from Artellos.com.
  • Double click ARCDC.exe
  • Follow the dialog until you see 6 options. Please pick: Windows Professional SP2 & SP3
  • You will be prompted with a Terms of Use by Microsoft, please accept.
  • You will see a few dos screens flash by, this is normal.
  • Next you will be able to choose to add extra files. Select the Extra Files.
  • Please copy the codebox below into the text area.


  • The last window will allow you to burn the disk using BurnCDCC
Your ISO is located on your desktop.

Then follow the Repair guide @ http://www.geekstogo...air-windows-xp/ courtesy of Admin
