I have an 2nd HDD with Win XP on a dual boot. This is just for my games and nothing else. It has been booting up fine and now out of nowhere it goes to boot and I get the error "windows/system/config/system is missing" and it tells me to put in my windows disk for repair. When I boot to my main drive and I try to copy any files from D to C I get the "Data Error Cyclic Redundancy Check" and D drive is SLOW in doing anything. It's been regularly scanned for viruses so that's not it. Is there a solution without formatting again?
If I have to format, I will, but I'd like to know what caused it.
