Is this XP?
Do you have the XP cd or the recovery cd's. This needs to be fixed by performing a Windows repair.
missing or corrupt: \windows\system32\config\system"means that the OS,XP, is missing an essential file to run.
Or it could mean that your hard drive is failing. Is the hard drive noisey?

The file system on the hard disk is corrupted. The only thing you can do is to reinstall Windows, and during the process select the full format, not the quick one.

Boot manager is missing and wont load windows 7 on compaq presario c700, no matter what i do it keeps returning to the boot manager missing press ctl alt dlt.screen how do i fix it


If your using a DVD to install the operating system, it could be either dirty (just needs a wipe) or the files on the disk are corrupt.

If you are getting this error while Windows 7 is starting up perhaps you can try doing a "repair". Boot off the DVD do a repair (not from the recovery console) and see if this helps.

Hope this helps.

I can't afford a brand new Windows XP boot disk Where


You should be able to download that file from microsoft, or try googleing "ntoskrnl.exe"
I done it for a missing dll file and found many places to download for free.

<Windows root>\system32\ntoskrnl.exe.


Do you have a Windows CD that came with your computer? If so do you know how to boot from it by inserting it into the drive and then pressing F12 just after you switch on your PC? If you can do this then you could try the "repair" option from Windows Setup, this might fix your missing PC problem.

Hi,

This is because files that windows xp needs to function properly are corrupted or missing, so you would have to repair or re-install windows xp using the operating system cd.

System file is "missing or corrupt"


You MUST use the installation bootup disk to install windows it is the only way........... NOT THE RECOVERY DISK this is a MUST. Allow it to go through the motion of installing Windows until it cannot go any further. Then press the "R" key for the console. When in the DOS screen TYPE ... chkdsk /p Windows will repair itself and then you will recover all your data it should be back to normal.
