Question about Computers & Internet
I cannot get my Dell 8200 to boot into windows I get \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM I tried to follow the fix or repair directions but my windows Reinstallation CD must be differ from the Original setup cd which I was to use then press r on first page as directed
Initially, I am inclined to suggest to perform a clean/fresh re-install of your Operating System rather than a repair. This would provide a new start where almost all of the PC's previous errors would be resolved. Thereafter, it is a matter of re-installing the drivers from the manufacturer's website support and download pages. However, doing so would erase all the contents which includes your personal files. A workaround is to remove the PC's hard disk and with the use of an IDE/SATA adapter to USB connect said HD to a 2nd PC and perform a simple copy and paste to a back-up folder. Should you consider a clean/fresh re-install, then it would not matter which version of the OS installer is available as you can perform updates and upgrades online. The CD also need not be the original that came with the PC. It can be an OEM or borrowed from somebody else. All you need is to use the Microsoft Windows CD key normally printed on a sticker attached somewhere on the PC.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
