Recently, while attempting to boot into XP Home SP2, I received a message..." C:\windows\system32\config\system is missing or corrupt".
I'd made an install cd from system files so I thought I'd try it.
Ran Setup and selected "r";
told it which system I wanted to repair and it asked for a password;
entered it (Admin. password) and it said "wrong password". I also tried just hitting Enter.
Fortunately, I had my registry backed up and fixed it that way
The original install, was from a Mfg. Restore disk using Norton Ghost . If there's someone else's password entered, how can I find/change it?
Thanks to anyone that can help.
