OS: XP SP3

My PC was working fine, i have a few problems with it but it was fine.
I take it to my friend's and set it up, i get an error

i couldn't start because system32/config/system was missing/corrupt.

I restarted my PC then it worked somehow. My keyboard wasn't picking up/installing itself because it wasn't plugged in before i turned the PC on. So i restared it, then i got the error message again, restarted it about 40 times more and it never worked.

Safe mode doidn't work, nothing did. So i booted up from my laptop's HDD which is running XP SP3, i thought i'd get the syem file from there and replace my corrupt one. it worked.

Then i tried running the PC and i got another error.

missing/corrupt file "system32/drivers/nvatabus" so i went on my PC's HDD that it said it was broken on, and it wasn't corrupt i just didnt have that file, i dont know why i didnt have the file. i didnt need it before. But luckily on my old SP2 (i think) HDD i found that file and i put it on the HDD. Restarted again and finally the PC worked, but now it says

LSASS.exe
"When trying to update a password the return status indicates that the value provided as the current password is not correct."

i can't format, it's not an option.
I need to get on my PC, i cant get on in safemode either.

Can someone help me?
i'll do anything.

Do you have the installation CD for the operating system?

If you do, there are options that can be tried which will not affect your data.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

not atm no, i have the CDs contents though, like, i can put the CDs contents on an external HDD etc but i dont know if u can boot/install like that. i have 3 HDDs in the PC and i have the SP3 image, so i can mount SP3 whilst on a different HDD's OS, i dunno if that helps though.
