I'm trying to start Windows 2000NT Pro Everything looks fine at first, but then I get a smaller blue screen with this message : STOP: c0000218 {Registry File Failure}
The registry cannot load the hive (file) :
\SystemRoot\System32\Config\SOFTWARE
or it's log or alternate.
It is corrupt, absent, or not writeable.

Beginning dump of physical memory
Dumping physical memory to disk

I looked at another post that had this same problem but it didn't seem to help.

Thnaks, A

Try using the Last Known Good configuration from the boot menu at startup.

Please see the link below for details.

Do you have the Win2K System disk?

Have you ever created an Emergency Repair Disk?

I do not have the windows disk and I have never tried to create a emergency disk. How do I create the disk if my computer can't get to the startup menu?

No - The Emergency Repair disk restores the registry.

Did your computer come with a restore disk? If it didn't, there may be a restore partition on the computer which is accessed through the bios setup screens or by pressing another F key before Windows begins to boot.

Watch the bottom of the screen carefully right after you power the computer on and look for directions on what F key to press.
