Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: System32\DRIVERS\isapnp.sys


This usually occur when unexpectedly deleted or corrupted the files cause by a virus or a third party software. All you have to do is repair your OS using your installation CD(XP) and do not reformat your HDD. Reboot your PC using your XP follow the instruction needed then when it come to the Repair, Do Not Repair, or Don't do anything choose Repair and follow again the instruction.

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
