The registry is corrupted. To fix it all you have to do is to reload the last backup or the last known good configuration.
If you don't have a backup or it has also failed, then you must reinstall.

The hive file is the problem, it is low on honey. Put it back to where the bees can produce enough honey for your PC to recognize it. Compaq's are notorious for their love of honey, that is why it is showing it is missing. DO NOT simply put honey on a CD and insert. Will not work.

Hi

files in system32\config\ are missing or corrupt.
there is a back up stored by default at c:\windows\repair
you can copy the contents of windows\repair folder into system32\config\ and it should solve the problem, you can do it with the windows installation cd by using the recovery console.

Go into the repair folder enter the following commands in repair console

cd windows (press enter)
cd repair (press enter)
copy *.* c:\windows\system32\config\ (press enter)

files should be copied

type exit, quit or restart or reboot to restart the computer.

STOP: C0000218 {Registry File Failure} The registry cannot load the hive (file):\System Root\System32\Config\SECURITY or its log or alternate. It is corrupt, absent, or not writable.


to fix the problem, you need the Installation cd, put it in, start the setup, and enter repair console when the first blue menu comes up.

In repair console, your going to have to copy the windows\repair directory to system32\config

to fix the problem.


After the files have been copyed, Well maybe might be better if you only copy the SECURITY file. so no login details get changed.


Then restart the pc and see if it worked. If not your going to have to perform a repair installation from the xp cd.

If you need more asistance, let me know. Good luck.

Registry file failure


If the last suggestion i posted didn't work, you need to put in your Windows CD on boot up and when it asks if you want to repair or install press 'R' for repair, this should repair any damaged registry files and Windows files.
