If you are not able to boot from the cd then i think you have not changed the boot order in bios settings to cdrom ...
tr changing it ...
if you have already done & then not working means there may be some problem in the cd ...
try using other cd .
if you are not able to repair then may be system is fully infected with the virus or the file system may have got corrupted ...
just try formatting the drive & then try new installation .....
you can do this after booting from the windows xp cd ...
after you boot then press new installation & after that format the partition & it will surely install if there is no problem in the cd ...

    your system is surely infected by the virus so only you couldnt able to system restore & repair so once you format the drive consisting of the OS then the problem will be solved ....

    take a back up of your important data & just format the drive & do the fresh installation of the OS...

As the computer boots up after turning on the power, you will most likely see a black screen.... trying to load.... while on this screen, press either F2, F8, delete or escape key to enter bios mode...(depends on the system, look for the one that says "press ____ to enter setup")
bios mode will give you options... look for the option that will allow you to boot from cd... choose that! Restart the system with the windows install cd in the cd-rom drive... this will boot the computer through the install cd which will allow you to reinstall the OS

Most read errors are due to corrupt MBR or failing hardrive.

If you can boot the PC with your Windows CD you can try running the Repair Console. Type "fixmbr" at the dos prompt once you get in. Answer yes and reboot. You might also want to type "fixboot" also before restarting the computer.

    you need to perform a full - fresh windows installation. that will fix the problem but also you will loose most of your files.

  • Ekse Jul 02, 2008

    you keep throwing us out from the door with requesting more assistance ( new expert comes in )



    The windows setup cd should start up a blue setup, it should not start windows if you are geting the same error about windows\system32\config\system



    You need to enter bios and change the boot order so the computer starts from cd before the hard drive.

  • Ekse Jul 02, 2008

    you need to change the bios settings so it starts up from the cd first.

  • Ekse Jul 02, 2008

    Im uploading you a video on how to change the bios settings.

  • Ekse Jul 02, 2008

    Dont press that, go with the normal setup, don't recover.

  • Ekse Jul 02, 2008

    or what kind of recovery cd you got? normal xp setup cd?

  • Ekse Jul 02, 2008


    Heres the video on how to change the bios settings.

    It took a while to process on youtube maybe too late.



    Put the cd in and let the setup start. dont start automatic system recovery or don't try to repair, just continue and do a full reinstall - enter setup.

This is an operating system error. You can try a reloading the system, however, this usually indicates a hard drive failure. If you have any issues during or after the install then the drive will need to be replaced.

    Run the disc until it get to the point of finding previous operating systems. Once it's found the operating system then run the repair from there. Don't try the repair from the recovery console, this is difficult and if you don't know what you're doing it's almost impossible.

  • Ryan Rogers
    Ryan Rogers Jul 02, 2008

    You will need to get to the boot menu at start up, or set the CD drive to boot before the hard drive in the bios/utilities in order to boot from your disc.

Why not you try a repair CD of XP.

Posted on Jul 02, 2008

  • dewan nafees ahmed Jul 02, 2008

    sir.

    this is just a problem with your operating system.

    for repairing your operating system you need not even get into the operating system.

    you can proceed it by choosing the second option during the windows CD boots.

C:\minint\system32\restore.log mising


Restore points are located in C:/Windows/system32/restore.
You have an unusual error message which talks about C:/minint folder. Seems like this is a virus issue. It would be better if you run virus scan for your computer.
Also run a system utility software RegInOut to refresh your PC.

File\minit\system32\Kdcom.dll could not be loaded.The error code is 4. The above massage is showing when I try to restore my Acer Aspire One.I am not able to run my window XP. Please help me.


It sounds like this file is corrupt you need to download a fresh copy and install it.
I would suggest trying to open your laptop in safe mode. While you are booting continually tap F8 and you should get a different menu. You need to select start in safe mode with networking. Follow the instructions to open it as an administrator.
When you have the system open use the internet to download a fresh copy of Kdcom.dll from here
http://www.dll-files.com/kdcom.zip?0WMmXCVMeO
Unzip the file to the same path as you show in your error message and overwrite the old copy of Kdcom.dll
Now restart your machine and hopefully this will have solved your problem.

Tosiba laptop could not start not even with safe mode.


The error message refer to system files it cannot load dur to either corrupted or missing files.
You can try to do a repair with your Windows CD install disk and if this does not work you will need to reinstall Windows again together with any drivers that Windows didn't install and your programs.
Note you will lose you data in this process, hoped you backed up your files.

Problem w/ WIN2000 Pro & XP Pro


HERE IS THE SOLUTION :
click on the link given below and find oc25.dll....if you are unable to find press keyboard key cntrl + f .A dialog box will appear now type oc25.dll and hit find key and you will find the oc25.dll .click on that file to download it to your computer.

http://www.dlldump.com/dll-files/O_2.html

Once you have downloaded the file you are looking for you still need to make sure Windows or the program causing the error can find it. Follow these steps:

1. If you are encountering an error with Windows...
The file you downloaded needs to be placed into the Windows System directory. On most machines this is one of the following locations:
C:\Windows\System (Windows 95/98/Me),
C:\WINNT\System32 (Windows NT/2000), or
C:\Windows\System32 (Windows XP).

If you are encountering an error with a particular program...
The file most likely needs to be in this program's directory. This directory is where the program is installed (i.e. c:\Program Files\ThisProgram).

If this step solves the problem, you do not need to complete step 2.

2. You may to register this file with Windows. Click on the Start Menu and then on 'Run'. If you are replacing a Windows system file, type the following command:
regsvr32 \windows\system\file.dll (Windows 95/98/ME),
regsvr32 \WINNT\system32\file.dll (Windows NT/2000), or
regsvr32 \windows\system32\file.dll (Windows XP).

For example, 'regsvr32 \windows\system\apphelp.dll'

If you are replacing a file for another program, change the directory where appropriate. For example, 'regsvr32 \program files\Norton\xyz.dll'

If the file is registered correctly, you will receive a positive confirmation message.
