Hi all

I have an Asus A7N8X Deluxe mother board and have been running the system fine, however I decided to download the new drivers, so I went on http://nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp then i downloaded it and installed it, while its was almost done installing, i left the room for about 1 min. and i came in and my comp restarted(i guess its normal for a system to reboot after installation), as i was sitting there waiting

Everything was going normal until, Windows XP did not boot, I just get the following message:

"Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
system32drivers
vatabus.sys"

so I'm praying someone can help me here.

Hi Valic. The easiest thing to try would be to boot the machine and begin tapping the F8 key to get to the Boot Menu. Choose last known good configuration and see if your computer will boot with that.

If that doesn't work then post back here and let us know what happened.

Cheers.

OT :thumbsup:
