It happened when I deleted the class registry keys because I did not know that they functioned with Windows.
Next thing I know, computer does not function, I can't click on anything.
I restart the computer and nothing happens. I try to repair using a Windows XP CD. It installs Windows XP Home Edition and the a long list of errors comes up for me. It occurs at 39min mark of setup.
The error says:
"OpenService(tabsrv) returned error 1060 (424)"
And many .CATs cannot be removed by setup.
At the end of the HUGE error list, it says:
"FATAL ERROR: Setup failed to install the prodcut catalogs. The setup log files should contain more information. "
"ERROR: "The signature for Windows XP Home Edition Upgrade is invalid. The error code is ffffffdda. The system cannot find message number 0xffffffdda in the message file for syssetup.dll."
I try everything, from boot-ups to repairs, nothing works.
Whenever I boot the computer with a floppy disk, it can't read the C: drive.
Pentium 4 1.8GHZ
1 Gigabyte of RAM
1 100 GB Hard Drive with 0 paritions
Windows XP Home Edition
If anyone can tell me or help me, that would be appreciated.
P.S. I can't get into Windows XP...
UPDATE: I will reformat the drive
