On a XP machine the following error...
"Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt : \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM
You can attempt to repair this file by starting windows setup using the original setup CD-ROM. Select 'r' at the first screen to start repair."
I've tried running the repair through setup and it sends me to a dos-like prompt screen. Many MSDOS commands don't work however and I have not been able to figure out how to run a repair.
Has anyone heard of this problem before? I would appreciate any guidance before I give up and try a re-install.
Thank you, Tim.
