  2. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to select the To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R option.
  3. Type the number of the Windows installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console, and then press ENTER.

  5. At the command prompt, type the following commands (press ENTER after each command):
  6. --->cd \windows\system32\drivers

My daughters Asus eee pc MK90H notebook says windows could not start because system 32 is missing or corrupt. It says to use the original CD Rom, which obviously we dont have. Help what do we do?


Hi,
To restore a missing or corrupt ntfs.sys file you must have the Windows XP CD and follow the below steps.

Insert the Windows XP CD into the computer and restart the computer.
As the computer is starting make sure to press a key to boot from the CD.
In the Windows XP setup screen press the 'R' key to run the Windows Recovery Console.
If prompted enter the number of Windows installation you're repairing.
At the command prompt type the below command.

copy x:\i386\ntfs.sys c:\windows\system32\drivers

* In the above example you would replace x: with the letter of your CD-ROM drive. Many computers have the CD-ROM drive configured as the D: drive.

If ntfs.sys is still on the computer you'll be prompted if you wish to overwrite the file. If prompted, press the Y key for Yes to overwrite the file.
Once the file has been successfully copied remove the CD and reboot your computer.

Do NOT use an OEM "Recovery Disc". Only a valid Windows XP media will work or a disc from the OEM that says "Operating System" may sometimes work depending on how the manufacturer labeled the CD.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need more information Thanks

Windows won't start


Hi,

When you put in the XP CD and it boots off the cd, the XP setup files copy across, and at the 1st screen, you should be able to choose Repair. Press r, and this will start the Recovery Console.

When you are in the recovery console, choose your Windows installation (You will see what I mean when you follow the instructions.)

When you are sitting at the command line(C:\>Windows), access your CDROM drive by typing the letter followed by a colon, eg "D:". It may also be E:, F:, or G:.

When you have changed to the CDROM drive, type the following:

cd\ <enter>
cd\i386 <enter>
expand pci.sy_ C:\pci.sys <enter>
C: <enter>
cd\ <enter>
copy pci.sys C:\windows\system32\drivers <enter>
If it asks to replace, confirm.

Then restart the computer.

Regards
Riztech

Setup cannot copy the file:p3.sys


This has to be a problem with your installation disc itself make sure it is not scratched. If it is a backup copy the files may have gotten corrupted. You will need to a get a new copy of the installation disc to be able to install.

Missing or corrupted file C:\windows\himem.sys


If you are running Windows 95, Windows 98, type:
copy himem.sys c:\windows <press enter>
If when typing any of the above commands you receive a prompt that the file already exists, ensure to overwrite it.
Reboot the computer; if the issue continues to occur, verify that the config.sys is properly setup. The line himem.sys should read:
DEVICE=C:\Windows\HIMEM.SYS
or
DEVICE=C:\DOS\HIMEM.SYS
Additional information and examples of the config.sys can be found on our autoexec.bat / config.sys page.

Windows installation issues


Either you have a defective CD, or a defective Hard Drive, or defective memory. Firstly is this a clean install? Try reformatting the drive and running chkdsk or a manufacturers disk utility. Then remove fingerprints and other marks from CD by wiping from the centre outwards. Let me know how you get on.
