The file could really be missing or corrupt, or the file system integrity on your hard disk may have been compromised after a power failure, non graceful shutdown or aborted boot/restart. Have any of those things happened?

I would first start with Method 4 from the CoolCatBad article - run chkdsk /r on your HDD from after booting the Windows Recovery Console. But first, you have to be in the Recovery Console, so if you are still seeing that message, you are trying to boot XP, so you need to back up a bit.

You can boot RC if you have access to a bootable XP installation CD (not a manufacturers installation/repair CD), RC was thoughtfully installed previously on your HDD and appears a a boot option, or you can make a bootable CD with just the RC on it.

Not everyone will have a bootable XP installation CD and they rarely seem to come with store bought computers. It is unlikely to be installed as a boot option unless you did it using an XP installation CD, but just about anyone can easily create a bootable CD with just RC on it.

What do you have/want to do?

Once you have RC running, you can run chkdsk /r as a first step.

The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates.

Boot into recovery console. See how to boot into recovery console (see Option 2) : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314058

When in recovery console type the following and one line at a time, pressing Enter each time:
cd \
attrib -s -h -r boot.ini
ren boot.ini boot.ini.bak
bootcfg /rebuild
fixboot

Finally type exit and press Enter to restart your compter

When bootcfg /rebuild asks for Load identifier just press Enter, when it asks for Load options type /fastdetect and pres Enter.
