operating system Windows Xp Home Edition mounted on Raid 0 serial Ata 120 gb (each) Barracuda drivers
+ a storage eide 80gb disk.
After a home blackout the operating system doens't start anyy longer with the following message (i translated it) : It's not possible ti start Windows because \windows\system32\config\system is missing or corrupted.
It is possible to repair a Windows installation by using the Recovery console.
At this point i'm due to reboot the pc using the original copy of XP HE
it could be useful to note that at the boot the pc recognized the Silicon Image Sata Raid 3112 4.2.27, and that the configuration sata raid panel shows no conflicts.
Asked to press F6 to install scsi drivers i follow the instruction (S to install the Via Serial Ata COntroller XP) and when the recovery console prompts the C> unit i see is the first partition of the Eide storage disk.
No S-ata drivers visibile, no chance to recover anything.
In the same way, if i try to reinstall Xp the S-ata drivers remain invisible....
Shall I suicide or there's a little hope
