PCI.SYS corrupt? Hi. i just installed a new bios for my mobo. i restarted it and it comes up with an error. File pci.sys corrupt. It doesnt let me get into my windows xp home OS. I researched the topic, but they all say that i need windows xp setup cd. unfortunately, i bought my hard drive with xp on it. is there another way? i have a seperate windows xp professional cd, but when i try to boot with that, nothing happens. WHAT CAN I DO?!? if need be, i can wipe my hard drive, i already have everything backed up, but not sure if that will work or how to do that.

    no. i disconnected all of my pci cards(pci, pci-e x16, everything) i even switched out my 2 ram modules to see if it was a ram problem. but nothing so far. i have my laptop rite next to me rite now. is there a way i can copy the pci.sys from my laptop to the desktop hardrive? if not, i mite as well just "borrow" a copy of xp professional from the internet and reformat.

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.

Riztech

How to solve pci.sys error during reformating of the hard drive


You have two ways to solve the problem of "Pci.sys Is Missing or Corrupt"
Error Message When You Start Windows.

1.Booting with WinXP CD to access the Recovery Console’s Repair option,
and then copy from WinXP CD the missing or damaged Pci.sys file to
Systemdrive:\Windows\System32\drivers folder , Exit and Reboot.

start the recovery console and type:
set AllowAllPaths = true
expand d:\i386\pci.sy_ c:\windows\system\drivers32 /y
If you don't type
set AllowAllPaths = true you can't access the windows folder.

2. Booting with WinXP CD and then perform a Windows XP Repair Reinstall
of the currently installed system.

If you need detailed assistance post with details of your Operating system
[WinXP Home vs WinXP Pro and the SP status i.e SP1 or SP2 ]

Hi! Think you have installed adriver not recommended to be used with your pc. Try installing a diffrent version. You can download it from the link--
http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/

If it doesn't work go to bios settings when your PC boots by pressing F2 key. Then go to Advanced options and change the value of

Onboard Serial Port 1 : Option should be set to 3F8/IRQ4 .
Onboard Serial Port 2 : Set this to 2F8/IRQ3
Onboard AC97 Audio Controller: Enabled

I can see you getting an error with pci.sys but not with pcy.sys.
Did a full system scan in a working WinXP Pro & found not such animal within the system or regestry. After looking through microsoft I did come across pci.sys and what may creat such an error. I would point to your onboard VGA. If intergrated into the board as I suspect. It is a pci device. During install windows found something wrong with it hence your error & blue screen. Suggest using your PCIE card & set bios to same disabling the VGA. Your install should no longer fail.
Good luck & please vote!
