You can download a copy of a recovery console ISO here: http://www.thecomputerparamedic.com/files/rc.iso
(DIRECT DOWNLOAD). You'll need an ISO burner program to burn it to a bootable CD.
In general, you should do the following to fix this kind of error:
1) Run a bootable diagnostic utility from the manufacturer of the disk drive (recently, at work, we've had a rash of dying Fujitsu SATA hard drives in Toshiba systems).
2) Then use the Recovery Console to run "chkdsk /r" (without the quotes)
3) Then attempt to replace the system hive with a copy from a backup.
If the drive tests good and the chkdsk doesn't fix it, then post back and we'll go through the process of replacing the system hive file.
