Default Tsunami PC Boot Problem

Hello all

I wonder if anyone can help.

Bought a Tsunami PC last week, and have now got an error trying to boot up windows xp.

The error message reads as follows..

STOP: C2000218 {Registry file failure}

The registry cannot load the hive (file):

SystemRoot\System 32\Config\SOFTWARE
or its log or alternate

It is corrupt, absent, or not writable

Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete

Contact your system administrator or technical support group for further assistance.

I have exhausted my ideas on how to rectify the problem.

Can anyone help please?

preferably backup data to cd or something with knoppix or something similar and do a clean reinstall or second repair with ur xp disc, and just cuz this relates to registry i was wondering if someone could tell me where is the actual registry located at the hdd like the actual file containing all the data on xp
