I am trying a repair install on an Acer laptop. I had previously tried a registry repair as per the Microsoft instructions. This advised me that some of the original install files did not exist (sorry I can't remember which ones, I have been trying to resolve this for several weeks now without success)
Having started a repair install, the m/c gets to the reboot stage and says setup is being restarted, then I get the following message:
lsass.exe system error
"When trying to update a password the return status indicates that the value provided as the current password is not correct."
The m/c then reboots and the process starts all over again.
The ultimate is to save the data and do a new install, but I just don't like giving up on these things.
