Missing or corrupt windows root system needs to be fixed

Really? What does F9 do? This is a lot of work. Anyway, here we go.
If you have a MS Product key sticker on the computer, and you must. Check which version you have. It might be Windows XP Home.

A free legal Windows image can be downloaded here. The site has links for various Win 7 versions. IT MUST BE THE SAME VERSION as the product key.

Next download this tool, and make a USB Win installation drive.

Next change BIOS to boot from USB drive. Choose Repair computer when it comes up. Then choose command prompt. Type sfc / scannow ENTER. This System File Checker. It finds and replaces corrupted system files.

If this fails you still have a Windows image to work with. There are many steps, so hope all goes well.

Eee pc 900SD. It wont boot up. say's file is missing or corrupt. \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM. There is no cd\dvd rom so can i use flash drive or memory stick to replace that file? Cheers Don.W.

systems32 is part of operating system. and your computer is corrupted. Only solution is to reformat your computer by installing fresh operating system. Don't worry, you can borrow from any of your friend his EXTERNAL CDROM or DVD DRIVE to reformat your computer.

Asus eee pc 900 /windows/system32/config/system

2 problems, your using a netbook that doesnt have an optical drive (cd/dvd) and you need a windows cd.
I dont think there is anything you can do until you call your retailer and request a copy of windows cd.
After that you can do a windows repair. Use the link below to see you options for accessing the cd once you have it.

ASUS eeePC 900 Keeps rebooting at XP load screen.

You're computer is booting that's not your problem. Its just not booting into Windows which is a different subject, so a boot disk will not do you any good. You have some corrupted files at the Windows end not the start up end. The only way to correct the Windows corrupt files is to use a Windows disc. So you'll have to buy/borrow a portable DVD/CD player and a copy of windows. Once the Windows disc loads then its just a matter of clicking on "repair" when the disc asks..that one of the drawbacks of netbooks..If you have any questions let me know..

Yes the hal.dll is one of the files it needs to boot up, It gets all of the hardware together..I own and ASUS and they pretty good about sending disk. Pull the disk out that came with the system. Just put it your CD and then go into Windows Explorer and look for that file. Its probably under i386 folder or Win32 folder. Once you find it then just drag it over to the c: drive and you are ready..I didn't get a cd player in mine, so you probably didn't either. I ended up buying one from Best Buy, it works really good, it's an HP.But anyway if you can copy that file over to the C: drive of your computer then you will be didn't way anything else did it> Let me know how it turn out..
