Windows XP Boot Errors

 

There are many boot errors, here are just a few I have seen.

 

 

\windows\system32\config\system is missing or corrupt

 

To fix this, insert the window XP CD into the PC and enter the repair console. At the command prompt type:

 

copy c:\windows\repair\system c:windows system32\config\system

 

 

 

NTLDR file is missing or corrupt

 

You will need to insert the windows XP CD into the PC and enter the repair console. At the command prompt type:

 

copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\

 

Once this has completed, type the next command

 

copy e:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\

 

 

 

Unmountable boot volume

 

Insert the Windows XP CD into the PC and enter the repair console. At the command prompt type:

 

CHKDSK /R
