I have a Dell Inspiron desktop that has windows xp professional. A couple of weeks ago after a power interruption, I booted and got the \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM error. After researching, I performed the microsoft recovery of corrupt registry http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307545. The problem was I only did part 1. After part 1 windows came up and I thought all was fine and it was until another power failure and when I booted back up I had the same error. I thought no problem, I would just repeat the steps I had done. When putting in cd and pressing r and then selecting drive, when I would type md tmp, it would say that the file already exists. This is when I realized that I did not do all parts of the recovery. Is there a way I can use recovery console to find this file and somehow boot to windows and then finish the recovery? Or does any body have any suggestions! I have tons of pics, music and video that I need to recover.
