XP Booting Problem - Missing or corrupt file, Recovery console admin password
Posted on 2004-09-21
I've a multiboot system with WIN2K on C Drive & WIN XP PRO(SP2) on D Drive.
On booting WIN 2K it boots normaly, but for XP I get the message - File missing or corrupt - \windows\system32\config\system
a suggestion is there to attempt to repair through XP setup CD, but the recovery console doesn't accept the admin password that i'd saved.
Any workarounds to recover the XP installation?
Does the boot disk set (for XP SP2) provided by microsoft help?
Can this be recovered using 'ERD Commander 2003' as I read somewhere?
