My daughters Asus eee pc MK90H notebook says windows could not start because system 32 is missing or corrupt. It says to use the original CD Rom, which obviously we dont have. Help what do we do?


Hi,
To restore a missing or corrupt ntfs.sys file you must have the Windows XP CD and follow the below steps.

Insert the Windows XP CD into the computer and restart the computer.
As the computer is starting make sure to press a key to boot from the CD.
In the Windows XP setup screen press the 'R' key to run the Windows Recovery Console.
If prompted enter the number of Windows installation you're repairing.
At the command prompt type the below command.

copy x:\i386\ntfs.sys c:\windows\system32\drivers

* In the above example you would replace x: with the letter of your CD-ROM drive. Many computers have the CD-ROM drive configured as the D: drive.

If ntfs.sys is still on the computer you'll be prompted if you wish to overwrite the file. If prompted, press the Y key for Yes to overwrite the file.
Once the file has been successfully copied remove the CD and reboot your computer.

Do NOT use an OEM "Recovery Disc". Only a valid Windows XP media will work or a disc from the OEM that says "Operating System" may sometimes work depending on how the manufacturer labeled the CD.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need more information Thanks

Won't finish boot because bad or missing system32/drivers/ntfs.sys file


There's a few ways to fix this. Easiest way is to just reinstall your operating system. That will wipe out everything and i assume you have data that you don't want lost.

Here is an alternate route. That file is stored on the disk in the I386 folder. Below is a link with the directions.

Be prepared, there is still a chance you could lose your data, but the above link gives you the best chance at fixing the problem.
