Above the question there has to be a numbered list of the existing windows xp installations. You have just to type the number that responds at the installation you want to recover.

Waiting clarification, don't hesitate to post.

Asus F8P: Windos could not start because the following file is mission or corrupt. Windows\system32\config\system.... I don't seem to have the original setup CD-Rom Andrew


let me guess that you are using windows XP as operasting system.
Check whether you can borrow a windows XP disc from any of your friends or relatives
You wont be able to purchase this disc as according to micorosoft windows XP is end of life (EOL)
The disc will say "microsoft windows XP"
Once you have the disc boot from this disc you need to go to recovery console
You might be asked which windows installation you want to logon to
press 1 and press enter
it may ask for an admonistrator password
leave it blank and hit enter
now you will be at C:\> if it is not type this command c: hit enter that will take you to c:\>
here you need to type the following command
chkdsk /p
once it is completed type exit and while the system is rebooting choose the option that says
"last Known Good Configuration"
This will fix the issue

Recovery partitions


You' want to set aside some space where to create these backups, they are generally 25% of the total drive space.

the assumption is that there is no data on the drive to save. During the install it will ask where you want to install windows, if there are existing partitions delete them all. Then create one partition and specify it to be 75% of the drive (or whatever you prefer). Leave the rest unpartitioned.

Select the partition you created to install windows on.

Once you have installed windows and all the drivers etc, format the rest of the drive in Disk management (part of Computer management in Control Panel). Finally install your favourite software to create backup restore images, and set it to save on the partition you created.

NOTE: you will still need to back up on some external media, if the drive fails all data will be lost.

Hope this helps

Dont have windows xp insall


If you can get the machine to start up, download the service pack 2. The sp2 install should fix the problem. If you can't get the machine to start up, then you will have to acquire an XP disc in order to fix it.

I am in need to install recovery console


Here's How:
Boot From the Windows XP CD

To enter Recovery Console in Windows XP, you will need to boot from the Windows XP CD.
  1. Watch for a Press any key to boot from CD... message similar to the one shown above.

  2. Press a key to force the computer to boot from the Windows CD. If you do not press a key, your PC will continue to boot to the Windows XP installation that's currently installed on your hard drive. If this happens, simply reboot and try to boot to the Windows XP CD again.
Press R to Enter Recovery Console

When the Windows XP Professional/Home Setup screen appears, press R to enter Recovery Console.

Choose the Windows Installation
2ef066b.jpg
The Recovery Console is now loading but needs to know which Windows installation to access. Most users only have a single Windows XP installation so the choice is usually clear.
To the Which Windows installation would you like to log onto question, press 1 and then Enter.

Enter the Administrator Password
df4e182.jpg

The Recovery Console now needs to know the administrator password for this Windows XP installation. Unless you are using a PC in a sizable business network, the administrator password is most likely the same password you use to access Windows XP on a daily basis.
To the Type the Administrator password request, enter the password and press Enter.
Note: If you do not have a password or Windows XP normally starts without asking for one, simply press Enter.

Make Necessary Changes in Windows XP Recovery Console

The Recovery Console is now fully loaded and the cursor should be sitting at the command prompt, ready for input, as shown in the screen shot above.
Make any changes necessary in the Windows XP Recovery Console. When complete, take out the Windows XP CD and type exit to restart the computer.

  1. When you reach the command prompt (detailed in Step 6 in the link above), type the following command and then press Enter.
    bootcfg /rebuild
  2. The bootcfg utility will scan your hard drives for any Windows XP installations and then display the results. Follow the remaining steps to add your Windows XP installation to the boot.ini file.
  3. The first prompt asks Add installation to boot list? (Yes/No/All).
    Type Y in response to this question and press Enter.
  4. The next prompt asks you to Enter Load Identifier:.
    This is the name of the operating system. For example, type Windows XP Professional or Windows XP Home Edition and press Enter.
  5. The final prompt asks you to Enter OS Load options:.
    Type /Fastdetect here and press Enter.
  6. Take out the Windows XP CD, type exit and then press Enter to restart your PC.
    Assuming that a missing or corrupt boot.ini file was your only issue, Windows XP should now start normally.

Before booting shows 2 profile


You need to edit your boot.ini file Click on START, right click on MyComputer, click on properties. In the System Properties Window click on the Advanced tab at the top, then click on Settings under Startup and Recovery. Click on Edit to edit the startup options manually. it should open a notepad that looks similar to this: [boot loader] timeout=5 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOW S [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windo ws XP Media Center Edition" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptOut Under the [Operating Systems] sections is where you will have multiple entries for profiles. Delete the entire entry for the profile you don't use. Save the file afterwards and that should do it. Good Computing!
