I need your advice, if I may: one users computer running windows xp pro 32bit sp3 mysteriously stop working, it is not booting windows on startup and given the error below.
When I start the computer, I get this message: "Windows XP could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\S
The link below is the relevant "fix".
(but i really hate to go through this, i'd rather restore to stable previous state.
I have instructed him to f8 in system bios and restore windows to previous state. However he is not able to launch f8. He is able to get to f2 and f10 on his hp wx8600.
What are ur thoughts? Advice?
