Hello,I have a HP pavilion zero 1000 series laptop with XP home. And she has been working just fine. I tried to fire it up today and got a message saying that I windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt. - \windows\system32\config\system and to repair I need to run the disc and run repair. Well I don't have the disk and was wondering if there is anyway to work around it. I have been getting my internet of my phone/Sufi I was thinking maybe I have wore out a battery or something I don't could y'all help me out thanks

1) Create Recovery Console CD using ARCDC:

Please download ARCDC from http://artellos.com/arcdc-page
1) Double click ARCDC.exe
2) Follow the dialog until you see 6 options. Please pick: Windows Professional SP2 & SP3
3) You will be prompted with a Terms of Use by Microsoft, please accept.
4) You will see a few dos screens flash by, this is normal.
5) Next you will be able to choose to add extra files. Select the Default Files.
6) The last window will allow you to burn the disk using BurnCDCC

Your ISO is located on your desktop.

2) After doing the above:

At the command prompt type:

ren c:\windows\system32\config\system system.old
copy c:\windows\repair\system c:\windows\system32\config
