It means that some files needed for windows to restart are missing,probably a system file or boot files. Some windows xp users usually re-install and repair their windows xp system using their original windows xp install disk and selecting the "repair" ooption. But another practical solution is to note down the missing file, then,on another PC using the same system,search for that file and copy, though you will have to note the folder location of that missing file from another PC. Boot your PC (the one that doesn't boot) with a system diskand on the command prompt (DOS prompt) copy the missing file from yourcopy disk to the same location where the missing file should be situated.

If the practical suggestion wouldn't work, then you have to re-install your windows on top of the current installation using your windows cd to repair yourwindows sytem, if this still doesn't then you have to install a new windows systemlocated in a different location in your disk, this way you still go to your saved files and backup your files.

Following files missing or corrupt: \windows\system32\config\system


Well this means one of important files needed to start Windows is corrupted (it's a registry file).
I'd recommend repairing Windows installation. If you have Windows XP and also the Original Windows CD follow: this guide.

Windows won't start


The ntoskrnl file (NT operating system kernel file) is one of the main Windows file. You can repair this file by inserting the Windows CD install disk and boot up with this CD. Follow the instructions to Install Windows but ignore the first Repair instruction (unless you have a repair disk sually a floppy disk) continue until you get a 2nd repair request, then select this repair.
Windows install will then copy the main files and overright the corrupted ones. (your data and programs should remain intact).
If you still have problems you most likely have to install Windows again.

Best of luck, hope this works out for you, it is a pain having to install Windows again, sometimes it can't be helped.
