help me out!!!!
i'm fixin a friends laptop, a compaq with microsoft home edition
when i go to turn it on, it takes a few minutes and then says
Windows could not start because the following file i smissing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM
You can attempt to repair this file by starting windows setup using the original setup CD-Rom
slelect "r" at the first screen to start repair
problem is.. my friend doesnt have the cd's... is there anything i can do?
also i downloaded a windows xp .iso file to make a bootable cd, but when i start it up with the cd in.. it takes me to an ms-dos command screen, any ideas on how to get it to windows desktop? Thank you in advance for any help.
