Hi,

No you cannot edit the config file in the .iso file. Its a longer method. You first need to unfold the iso file. Next edit the config file. Next you need to create a fresh .iso file. Now burn the iso image on a disk and use it for installation.

For all this activity please use MagicISO.

Thanks for contacting Fixya and please accept the solution if it has helped you.

Windows\system32\config\system file is missing or corrupt


Step 1:
SP3 is the third and final service pack released for Microsoft Windows XP, and it eliminates many of the security holes that previously affected XP. While Microsoft recommends that users download SP3 using Windows Update, some users are unable to do so. However, it's easy to create a Windows XP SP3 installation CD; it requires only that you download the pack from the website and burn it to a CD-R/DVD-R using an ISO burner program.
Download the SP3 installation ISO by visiting the first link listed in the "Resources" section of this article. Save it to your Desktop. Download ImgBurn and save it to your Desktop. Double-click the installation executable for ImgBurn and click "Next." Follow the remaining onscreen prompts and click "Finish" to complete installation of ImgBurn. Insert a blank CD-R/DVD-R into your DVD drive. Open ImgBurn by going to "Start," "Programs" and "ImgBurn." Click "File," then "Browse for a source file." Navigate to your Desktop and select the SP3 ISO file. Click "Open." Click the blue "ISO to CD" button located on the bottom left of ImgBurn. The program will begin creating the Windows XP SP3 installation CD. This process may take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes to complete depending on the speed at which the CD-R/DVD-R is being burned. Click "OK" once the CD-R/DVD-R has finished burning. You've successfully created a Windows XP SP3 installation CD.

No drivers of high defination on audio, ibm r60e


The same model ThinkPadcan have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless youknow exactly which one is installed in your ThinkPad, you need to download allthe drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver. When you download thedrivers, write down the device driver and it's file name so you have a recordof which driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files arelocated on your hard drive. Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEBsite - support/download page and download the latest Windows device drivers foryour model computer, Use this link: - http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FbrowseByProductLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo&brandind=10&validate=true You can download thevarious drivers and then you click on and run the various driver files, theywill then unzip and expand into a sub folder on C:\drivers Then install thevarious drivers from this folder (run the set-up file).

I have an IBM thinkpad x41 and it comes to the Windows xp screen needing a password and I dont know the password can someone help me?


You can use Ophcrack, an open source software. You don't need any access to Windows to be able to recover your lost passwords. Simply visit the site, download the free ISO image, burn it to a CD and boot from the CD. The Ophcrack program starts, locates the Windows user accounts, and proceeds to recover (crack) the passwords - all automatically.

Here is the link to download you ISO file to burn to a cd.
http://downloads.sourceforge.net/ophcrack/ophcrack-xp-livecd-2.3.1.iso

Or use Another computer by installing the exe file and make a cd for your recovery:
http://downloads.sourceforge.net/ophcrack/ophcrack-win32-installer-3.3.1.exe

delete config.xml

Do not just install "over" the old version
quite often some files are not updated correct and get corrupt.

You can find Config.xml at:

Open Windows explorer select "show hidden files" in folder options

Paste or type %AppData%Skype in Windows or IE address bar.

Once you have found your Skype folder open your Skype username folder and look for the config.xml file.

delete config.xml any changes manually edited in this config.xml will be lost

exit Skype first

This config.xml will be rebuilt without any data loss, but hopefully error free, with next start of Skype.
Once you login again Skype will rebuild you config.xml file and download all you contacts.

Password restore for window home xp


You do need a little tool called NT Passwords which has to be burned to a CD after unzipping it. You can use tools like Nero Burning Rom to burn the ISO file. The tool works with Windows 2000 and XP only, no Vista support yet. Boot your system from CD and you should see a prompt that asks for user input. The first step would be to select the partition of your Windows installation. After that the program asks for the path to the Windows registry, this depends on your version. For xp it would be “windows/system32/config”, for Windows 2000 “winnt/system32/config”.
Just press enter in the next dialog which will lead to the password reset options. Press enter again because choice [1] “Edit User Data and Passwords” is what we want.
Enter the username that you want to change the password from, remember it is case sensitive. You will be prompted to enter a new password. If you want you can change the passwords for other accounts as well or leave the program by hitting “!”, then “q” to quit and Y to accept the changes.

Ix104c3 fails to start half way through loading xp


hmmm it appears that file maybe missing on the hard drive of the pc and when its restarting like that its encountering a blue screen of ***** because it can not load that system required file now there is a way to fix this but you can expect everything to be placed into the windows.old folder if done right but you will need a second pc to do this

First: https://www.fullversionforever.com/windows-xp-black-edition-latest/ download the file here but instead of placing the ISO image onto a USB drive with the program they say to use you can burn this file onto a disk using window's built in tool or IMGburn (built in way: right click on the ISO file and click burn image and this will burn windows XP BE onto a typical 700MB disk (WIN XP BE isnt a normal windows xp version but will be supported by MS up to 2019) plus the install will be like installing XP but just refreshing it long as you dont format the hard drive (EG: do not format during the install setup)

Second: install a well good known antivirus such as AVG or Sophos home antivirus
