On a Windows 2000 server an error message that reads " The registry cannot load the hive (file):
\Systemroot\System32\config\software or its log or alternate.  It is corrupt or missing".  The server
then procedes to perform a memory dump.  After the dump is complete it cycles back to the error
message, as a result I cannot log in to the machine.  FYI.  The administrator of the server does not
have an ASR disk, a backup of the system state, nor the password to the recovery console.
Can this machine be saved without losing any data?
