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 the windows setup cd, or restore discs if you have these.

    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.

Tip

Add Remove Programs list is blank -- Windows 2000


Usually It happens due to some virus activity or any corruption in system files. So when you go to Add Remove Programmes, It shows nothing but a blank space.

· To resolve this issue with Internet Explorer 6.0 installed, repair Internet Explorer 6.0:
Click Start, and then click Run.
Paste the following command in the Open box, and then click OK:
rundll32 setupwbv.dll,IE6Maintenance "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Setup\SETUP.EXE" /g "C:\WINDOWS\IE Uninstall Log.Txt"
Because this command is case sensitive, you should copy the command, and then paste the command in the Open box.
· To resolve this issue with Internet Explorer 5.0 or 5.5 installed, repair Internet Explorer 5.0 or 5.5:
Click Start, and then click Run.
Paste the following command in the Open box, and then click OK:
rundll32 setupwbv.dll,IE5Maintenance "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Setup\SETUP.EXE" /g "C:\WINDOWS\IE Uninstall Log.Txt"
Because this command is case sensitive, you should copy the command, and then paste the command in the Open box.

If the Add/Remove Programs tool still does not function properly, shows no content, or if you want to try to fix this issue without upgrading to later versions of Internet Explorer, check the following registry keys to make sure that they contain entries:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Management\ARPCache
Note If the previous registry keys are blank, the Add/Remove Programs tool may also be blank.

Use the command line REGSVR32 [path\filename] to register each of the following files:

%systemroot%\System32\Appwiz.cpl
%systemroot%\System32\Mshtml.dll
%systemroot%\System32\Jscript.dll
%systemroot%\System32\Msi.dll
Program Files\Common Files\System\Ole DB\Oledb32.dll

%systemroot%\System32\Msdart32.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\Mshtmled.dll
%systemroot%\System32\Mswstr10.dll [not registerable]


If the Add/Remove Programs tool displays incomplete information or is blank, verify the file dates. Where possible, register the following files:

%systemroot%\System32\Gdi32.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\User32.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\Msvcrt.dll [not registerable]

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.

STOP C0000221 erro de hardware desconhecido systemroot system32 ntdll.dll


You may receive one of the following stop error messages while working on your Windows XP computer.
STOP: C0000221 unknown hard error
Path\File_nameSTOP: 0xC0000221 unknown hard error
C:\Winnt\System32\Ntdll.dll (or another specific file or driver)
STOP: 0xC0000221 STATUS_IMAGE_CHECKSUM_MISMATCH
Path\File_name
Note: The error message may be discussed in many different formats-blue screen or message box. It depends on when the corrupt file was detected.
Similarly, you may receive the following STOP messages when a critical system file fails to load on your Windows NT and Windows 2000 computer.
STOP: C0000221 unknown hard error
<path>\<file_name>STOP: 0xC0000221 unknown hard error
c:\winnt\system32\ntdll.dll
Note: Some other drive may also be given in the message.
On Windows 2000 the following error message may display:
STOP: 0xC0000221 STATUS_IMAGE_CHECKSUM_MISMATCH
<path>\<file_name>
You usually face this problem when an incorrect driver for one or more hardware is installed on your system. For instance, the error messages described above are displayed when you install a millions of instructions per second (MIPS) driver on a x86 system.
Cause of the Error
This error occurs if the file given in the error message is damaged.
Your Windows XP operating system checks the following files for integrity during system startup:
  • All driver files, excluding the files that loaded using the system loader to start your system .
  • All DLL (Dynamic Link Libraries) on the system. These include, Graphics Driver Interface (GDI), User, Ntdll, Crtdll, Shell, Kernel and several other DLL files on the system.
  • On Windows NT and 2000 computers, all DLLs loaded in the Window server address space are also checked.
The problem may also occur if an Iomega Zip drive is connected to the same cable as your hard disk drive.
Resolution Method
You can resolve this issue by removing the corrupt driver from your computer and then reinstalling a fresh and healthy copy of the driver. You may need to use the Device Manager utility to remove the driver. It is recommended that you clean your registry with the help of a reliable tool, such as RegGenie to ensure that all entries related to the uninstalled driver are removed from the system. After you have completely removed the corrupt driver, restart your system and install a fresh copy of the driver on the system.
If this step does not resolve the problem, you may have to reinstall Windows XP.
It is recommended that you regularly clean your registry with the help of a registry cleaner tool and perform antivirus and antispyware scan using tools, such as Antivirus Plus and StopZilla to prevent such errors from occurring on your system.

GOOD LUCK :-)

"<Winnt_root>\System32\Hal.dll missing or corrupt:


  1. Verify the boot.ini file is found on the computer by using a boot diskette or use your Windows CD to get to the MS-DOS "C:\>" prompt.
  2. From this prompt edit the boot.ini, verify that it is pointing to the correct operating system, and that no anomalies are found within the file. Below is a listing of what to verify
  • If only one operating system is on the computer verify that the boot.ini only has one operating system listed. In some situations an alternate configuration line may be added for the same operating system, leaving the improper line.
  • Verify that the "default=" line as well as the operating system line are the same and that they are pointing to the correct operating system.
Verify that the computer has the hal.dll file

From the MS-DOS "C:\>" prompt quickly determine if your computer has the "hal.dll" file by typing "dir hal.dll /s" at the prompt. If the computer returns a "File not found" message, the hal.dll has been deleted.

To recover this file boot the Windows operating system CD and choose the option to "Restore", "Repair", or "Recover." This option will prompt you for the Windows installation to use, the administrators password and will allow you to restore the proper file. At the MS-DOS prompt type the below command.

expand C:\i386\hal.dl_ D:\windows\system32\

In the above example "D" would be the letter of your CD-ROM drive and "C" the letter of the drive your operating system is installed on. For example, your disc drive may be D: and your hard drive is likely C:.
