    so you can not start windows at all? did you try starting up in safe mode? i agree, it could be a missing dll... but if you can't start at all, it could be a problem...

    Need to know the EXACT file name that is missing before proceding. Some files can be worked around but typically not in the scenario you are talking about.

    What version of windows is this? It sounds like you are getting a message about a corrupt or missing .dll This can be fixed by using a windows disc and running the repair console. If you do not have your original windows disc you may have some system restore discs or you might be able to borrown one from somebody.

This issue can occur if the System or Software hive for the Windows XP installation is missing or damaged.

My acer notebook says windows could not start because the file is missing or corrupt \windos\system32\config\system. How do I repair it without a drive to download windows xp onto the computer?


Well i got a trick, i get into other xp notebook or pc and get rid of it of copying the missing file from others, to find that missing file into that address, then burning on the CD, while booting, that he have the file.But that is a file that he trail for configuration of the operative system, but is missing.Sometimes is file that is gone lost from someplace or is delete by bad malware.If you have recover, your lucky to have one.

NTLDR is missing


Insert and boot from Windows XP CD just as if u want to do a new installation entirely

1- If it detects the operating system - just do a repair
2- If it fails to detect the initial operating system
- Restart and allow the CD to run
- In the first Dialog window press R (Recovery Console)
- then type CHKDSK /p /r at the command prompt

  6. Windows NT installed on a partition bigger then 7.8GB

Miscellaneous corruption
Before trying any of the below recommendations it's recommend that you attempt to load the last known good configuration. Additional information about doing this can be found on document CH000626.
Corrupt boot.ini file
This issue is often caused when the boot.ini is missing or improperly configured. This issue often arises after a user has recently added or removed an operating system on the computer or added or removed hard disk drives in the computer.
Make sure the line pointing to the operating system and its drive and partition is properly configured in the [boot loader] and [operating systems] section. Additional information about boot.ini can be found on document CH000492.
Missing boot.ini file
Microsoft Windows XP users:
If the boot.ini is severely corrupted or missing a user running Microsoft Windows XP can rebuild the boot.ini to resolve this issue. Additional information about rebuilding the boot.ini can be found on document CH000648.
Microsoft Windows NT and Windows 2000 users:
To restore the original boot.ini file in Microsoft Windows NT or Windows 2000 you will need an ERD and follow the below steps. If you do not have an ERD you will be unable to follow these steps.
  1. Boot the computer with your Windows NT three setup diskettes or the Windows 2000 setup disc.
  2. In the setup menu, type R to start the repair.
  3. When prompted for the ERD diskette insert the diskette and inspect the startup environment.
Missing or corrupt ntoskrnl.exe file
If the ntoskrnl.exe file is corrupt or missing this can also generate the error. To restore this file follow the below steps.
  1. Insert the Microsoft Windows XP CD. Note: If you have a recovery CD or a restore CD and not a Microsoft Windows XP CD it is likely the below steps will not resolve your issue.
  2. Reboot the computer, as the computer is starting you should see a message to press any key to boot from the CD. When you see this message press any key.
  3. In the Microsoft Windows XP setup menu press the R key to enter the recovery console.
  4. Select the operating system you wish to fix, and then enter the administrator password.
  5. Type expand d:\i386\ntoskrnl.ex_ c:\windows\system32
  6. You will then be prompted if you wish to overwrite the file type Y and press enter to overwrite the file.
  7. Type exit to reboot the computer.
Windows NT installed on a partition bigger then 7.8GB
If you are running Microsoft windows NT 4.0 on a partition larger than 7.8GB this issue can occur if the boot files are located outside this limitation. When this error occurs your computer will have the error message as shown below.
OS Loader v4.01
Disk I/O error status=00000001
Windows NT could not start because the below file is missing or corrupt: winnt\system32\Ntoskrnl.exe
Please reinstall a copy of the above file.
If your system partition is larger than 7.8GB you will need to delete the partition and recreate the partition to 7.8GB or less. Additional information about this issue can be found on Microsoft KB Q224526.
Corrupted hard disk drive or severely corrupted Windows
Attempt to check the hard disk drive for any errors by running the chkdsk program. To do this follow the below steps.
  1. Insert the Microsoft Windows XP CD. Note: If you have a recovery CD or a restore CD and not a Microsoft Windows XP CD it is likely the below steps will not resolve your issue.
  2. Reboot the computer, as the computer is starting you should see a message to press any key to boot from the CD. When you see this message press any key.
  3. In the Microsoft Windows XP setup menu press the R key to enter the recovery console.
  4. Select the operating system you wish to fix, and then enter the administrator password.
  5. Once at the recovery console type chkdsk /r
  6. Once completed type exit and see if issue is resolved.
If after trying all of the above steps you are still encountering the same issue it's likely that Windows is severely corrupted and it is recommended you attempt to reinstall Windows. Additional information about erasing the computer and starting over can be found on document CH000186.
Finally, if during the Windows installation you encounter errors it's likely that your hard disk drive is bad.

Missing normalize.dll


Use a memory stick to back up all your programs you have installed and then format you computet.
or download or buy a new program for Explorer or get Firefox it is a much better and you can download it for free. Remember to create back up files on an old laptop or a memory stick just in case of any loses during formating the computer... The same is advisable is creating an new account.
