Unhappy Windows XP Recovery Console

One of the windows files (pci.sys) is corrupted and windows ask me to run setup to repair the file.

The file is fixed when i typed at Recovery Console: "expand e:\i386\pci.sy_ c:\windows\system32\drivers\ /y". However, on restart, windows say another .sys file is corrupt. The process goes on a on -> everytime after a .sys file has been fixed, another one is corrupted. How do i fix all the .sys files in one go?

When i typed the command: "expand e:\I386\*.cab -F pci.sys C:\windows\system32\drivers". It says "Copy does not support wildcard."

it's unusual for alot of sys files to become "corrupted" without reason. have you changed any of your hardware recently? can you not reinstall windows that would be a quicker way of doing it?

if you have changed some hardwere (ram causes this problem for me but that is not always the case) then try removing the new hardware and booting windows
