Hey there I am currently trying to recover from corrupted registry preventing my computer from booting to Windows XP Pro.
These instructions by microsoft are not working for me for some reason.

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...Ben-us%3B307545
Problem is I can`t even get past the first step of it.
when i type in md tmp, it says "The path or file specified is not valid. Same goes with the other ones.
Someone please help me out with this. I need to recover these very important files off my computer.

It states that i should do the following in the recovery consol prompt.


At the Recovery Console command prompt, type the following lines, pressing ENTER after you type each line:

md tmp
copy c:\windows\system32\config\system c:\windows\tmp\system.bak
copy c:\windows\system32\config\software c:\windows\tmp\software.bak
copy c:\windows\system32\config\sam c:\windows\tmp\sam.bak
copy c:\windows\system32\config\security c:\windows\tmp\security.bak
copy c:\windows\system32\config\default c:\windows\tmp\default.bak

delete c:\windows\system32\config\system
delete c:\windows\system32\config\software
delete c:\windows\system32\config\sam
delete c:\windows\system32\config\security
delete c:\windows\system32\config\default

copy c:\windows\repair\system c:\windows\system32\config\system
copy c:\windows\repair\software c:\windows\system32\config\software
copy c:\windows\repair\sam c:\windows\system32\config\sam
copy c:\windows\repair\security c:\windows\system32\config\security
copy c:\windows\repair\default c:\windows\system32\config\default

Nevermind Issue fixed found a way to get through using a Linux program and grab the Xp files off and transfer them to a USB stick. Thanks :thumbsup:
