Hello all, so I have been attempting to follow the steps listed here:
to help me rebuild this BSoD I've been getting about a missing System File.
When I run the command "copy c:\windows\system32\config
I get a message saying File not Found. This is fairly normal since this file is most likely missing and therefor causing my problem.
I run all the other commands listed in that link with no issues. When I get to the bottom and run "copy c:\windows\repair\system c:\windows\system32\config
\system" it tells me that the File specified cannot be found. I've double checked and triple checked for no typos. I reviewed several other sites with that set of commands to run.
Obviously, I am missing the "System" file. I thought the purpose of the last section was to copy a good version of the System file into the System32 directory. How can it be that the recovery directory does not have this System file?
Can I simply copy and paste this file from a different Xp Pro machine? Is there something I am missing here?
My shop is only open Mon-Fri so I wont be able to check this thread nor try anything till Monday morning. However, I will be checking back here and responding at that time. Thanks again.
