File missing, error message on start up of Windows 2000
Posted on 2006-06-15
I was working on some documents when I accidentlly hit the off button on my desktop. The computer shutdown right away. When I tried to restart it the following error message came up: Windows 2000 could not start becasue the following file is missing or corrupt: WINNT\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEMced startup options for Windows 2000, press F8.
After pressing F8, it comes up: You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows 2000 setup using the original setup floppy disk or CD-ROM. Select r at the rigst screen to start repair.
I cannot find the disk and now I do not know how to make repairs.
The OS is WIndows 2000 service pack 4. Intel(R) Celer on (R) CPU 2.20GHz, AT/AT COMPATIBLE 260.088KB RAM. Can anyone help with this problem? Thanks
